Killer bees attack Dachshunds, pit bulls

Alas of the four dogs swarmed in the South Florida attacks, only one pit bull survived. The Palm Beach Post reports:

Nancy J. Hill stepped outside her Dorado Drive home at about 4:30 p.m. Friday to walk her two dachshunds. She made it 15 feet from the door when the bees swarmed her, then killed the 7-year-old dogs, Hill’s husband Brian said.
“They were out to hurt seriously,” said Brian Hill, who was stung a couple of times himself. “It wasn’t a question of physical size. These guys were really powerful.”

Palm Beach County Animal Control said Friday that the bees also stung two pit bills, killing one and sending the other to the hospital.

Emergency officials transported Nancy Hill to the hospital, where she remained for several hours Friday night while medical personnel removed stingers, her husband said.
