News: Bee Attack

Last week, a group of teenaged hikers were attacked by bees in Southern California. One teen suffered more than 200 stings. A boxer dog accompanying the hikers apparently provoked the attack when he disturbed a nest. The dog died of multiple stings.

Here’s the Associated Press article.
