It’s unclear if the attack was pre-meditated for headline purposes.
The Cantu family probably should have thought about bee attacks before moving to Beeville, in Bee County, Texas, but then that’s the sort of cavalier, devil-may-care attitude you’d expect from people who choose to live in such ominously named areas.
Richard Cantu was clearing brush from his tractor when the bees attacked, stinging him, his son and his grandson. 15 firefighters and nine police officers had to be called to calm the situation.
Speaking to KiiiTV, Beeville Police Sergeant Greg Baron claimed it was ‘the largest bee swarm I have ever seen’, which is really saying something.
Top tip: Never visit Beeville.
