Bees swarm home, attack resident and kills two dogs

DEWEY, Ariz. — A swarm of bees has attacked a Dewey resident and killed two dogs.

The Daily Courier reports ( ) Central Yavapai Fire District firefighters responded to the home after a bee attack had been reported.

The fire district’s division chief, Rick Chase, says the person who reported the incident was found swatting at bees in a truck in the driveway.

Two dogs died from bee stings, despite being taken to an animal hospital.

A cat was rescued from the attack, but it is not known whether the cat survived.

A portion of the roof had to be removed Tuesday to allow a beekeeper in to collect the bees that had taken over the attic.

Firefighters foamed the remainder of the bees.
