Swarm Of Bees Kill Young Pit Bull In North Hollywood

NORTH HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A swarm of bees killed a 5-year-old female pit bull in North Hollywood Saturday.

The attack occurred in the 11000 block of Cumpston Street.

A tree in the neighborhood was being cut down and there was a bee hive inside the tree. When the bees got agitated they attacked the dog, named Babe.

“Don’t provoke the bees, don’t throw anything at them,” warns exterminator Mason Denny. “Common sense you know.”

The bee hive will be removed Sunday.

No word on how large the swarm or hive is.
