Texas Horses Dead after being Swarmed by Bees
Two horses are dead after being swarmed by bees in Texas.
The Callahan County, Texas, Sheriff's Deputy Larry Lemon said sheriff's personnel responded to a call from an owner in Eula on June 13 saying both his horses were involved in a bee attack. Upon arrival the deputies discovered one horse down in a field and the other outside the pasture trying to escape the swarming insects, Lemon said.
“The owner was washing down the horses when the bees attacked,” Lemon said. “He was able to escape the bees, but could not get to the horses in time.”
Lemon said both horses had probably been stung thousands of times; both animals were euthanized at the scene
