"Killer" Bees Attack Dogs

In Riviera Beach, FL a 70 year-old-woman was injured and three dogs killed when attacked by bees living at a vacant house.

Nancy J. Hill stepped outside her Dorado Drive home at about 4:30 p.m. Friday to walk her two dachshunds.

She made it 15 feet from the door when the bees swarmed her, then killed the 7-year-old dogs, Hill's husband Brian said.

"They were out to hurt seriously," said Brian Hill, who was stung a couple of times himself. "It wasn't a question of physical size. These guys were really powerful."

Palm Beach County Animal Control said Friday that the bees also stung two pit bills, killing one and sending the other to the hospital.

Pest control workers destroyed the hive, officials are waiting for lab reports to determine if they were Africanized "killer" bees. That's a scary story, I'l glad the woman will be fine.
