    I read about it over at CNN. The quote below by the officer made me laugh.

    Jenkins said about six bees got in his patrol car. He dispatched a couple when "they got too close to my personal space."

    It was good of him to wait for them to be capured, considering the current bee crisis.

    Oor station bordered a park with a large pond and geese. As people approached the front door of the station, the geese would come up and bite them in the butt.

    Reminds me of what we get told before training in the Mojave Desert. Apparently if you kill one of the bees out there, it releases some sort of distress chemical and brings others too it's aid. So if any of us decide to kill a bee, we have to make sure and do a high five with someone who we know runs slower than us. Of course, we just try and avoid the bees. I'm not making this up either.

    You don't even have to kill it,if it stings you the other bees will hone in on the pheromones(sp)or whatever the chemical is the sting emits and attack in full force,I'd pay at least $5 to see a platoon of marines running from a couple of bees hoooah

    I grew up around honey bees. I loved to help my dad when it was time to get the honey out of there hives. My brothers and sisters were scared of the bees so I was the only one who would help him, I remember when we were finished I would get a handful of honey.

    I think the bees were profiling, trying to get back at Mr. Bear!

    As a bee keeper, I'd like to point out that the bees that were "Holding the LEO hostage" were being sweep off the car by a young lady with bare arms, hands and legs.

    Now for a change of pace check out these pix:
