Sting in the tail

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I’ve been to some weird & wonderful jobs in my time. I had a period as a wildlife liaison officer & got sent to various jobs involving  members of the animal kingdom, usually as a result of an injury or some cruelty.

I’ve never been attacked by a swarm of bees.

The below photo is the aftermath of an incident in which a North Carolina deputy got sent to an RTC involving a truck which was carrying 60 boxes of bees. The insects escaped at swarmed on the officer who retreated to his patrol vehicle, whereupon the bees massed over the police car. Local police were forced to call backup in the form of two local bee-keepers who managed to remove the bees after calming them down with smoke & sugar water spray.
