Did you hear about the 100+ year old man in a wheel chair attacked by bees? Others who went to save him were stung numerous times also, and so were firemen trying to get him help.
A 1000-pound sow was killed by bees also.
1,000 pounds! Can you imagine what they would have done to us?
I read about this AFTER we took our walk last Sunday in a park where we came across this. We at first wondered who would have draped a tree with canvas? But then saw a bee going into a hole in the fabric. A beehive! Ack. Right next to the trail.
Now, I might not have stayed around to take a picture if I'd known about the bee attacks that I'd read later...not here, but still, it makes you realize just how dangerous they can be.
My daughter and her Girl Scout troop were stung several times during a Girl Scout trip to the zoo in Tulsa. My daughter and another little girl were the most severely stung and the other girl threw up on the way home. Luckily outside of my new car and not inside it. The joys of being a Girl Scout leader!
You never know when you might be faced with the wild side of nature though. It doesn't have to be in the form of wild wolves!! But something as small as a bee.
Ever have any run-ins with wild beasts and lived to tell about it???
If you didn't live to tell about it, you can give us your ghostly experiences too. Which reminds me that I was watching a ghostly cruise ship story and got too scared to watch the rest of it last night. Between closing my eyes during the really scary parts, and taking breaks to the other parts of the house on "errands" to get away from it, I finally decided it wasn't for me!!!
