Neighborhood on alert after bee attacks
by UPI

BROADVIEW PARK, Fla. -- Dog owners in a South Florida park say they are on alert for stragglers from a bee hive responsible for the stinging deaths of two canines last week.

The hive was removed from a home in Broadview Park, Fla., after two dogs were died but residents of the neighborhood remained watchful in case any of the insects were still buzzing around.

"I'm not a worry wart but I'll be looking around," longtime resident Dolores Clawson told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The newspaper said Tuesday the massive hive found between the walls of the house was a whopper. It was home to an estimated 60,000 bees and included several queen cells. Only about half of the bees were accounted for when exterminators hack-sawed it out of the house.

Florida agriculture officials said it wasn't known if the bees were honey bees or more-aggressive Africanized bees.
