The swarm of bees that killed a dog were on the warpath after the tree that harbored their hive was cut down in a North Hollywood neighborhood. The pit bull was not bothering the bees, according to the Inquistr on Monday, March 18, 2013, the stinging insects were after any living thing due to their home being disturbed.
This isn't the first time a swarm of bees killed a dog, earlier this month an Australian Shepard was attacked and killed by the honey-making insects in Modesto, California. Last year another incident of angered bees took the lives of 16 dogs in a boarding facility.
The neighbors couldn't contain the bee swarm and the Los Angeles Fire Department was called. The firemen killed the bees using water and foam. The dog was rushed to a vet, but didn't survive after being stung numerous times. One neighbor spoke to the media and conveyed his sadness over the dog, but also said that instead of the dog, this could have happened to one of the many children in the neighborhood. He was thankful that wasn't the case.
