I actually set up quite a masterful comparison if I do say so myself. Both have the potential for danger, and have the potential to kill you, but statistically the odds are extremely low that this will ever happen to you. You must be very careful around them and even if you are there is the possibility that things can go south on you. Many people are absolutely terrified of them but it is out of total ignorance.

He was impressed. But he is still vehemently anti-gun (though I think he has set up a hive).

See what I mean? Mobile can't be blamed for his fear. He is just ignorant. He don't know no better. I mean seriously? Shake Obama's hand over approaching a beehive with a full suit on? That's just crazy talk!

FRANKLIN COUNTY, N.C. — A Franklin county woman said she returned home Monday to a shocking sight: Her dog was covered in hundreds of bees.

Ashley Seagroves said her 4-year-old mixed breed dog, Mika, was chained near his dog house and unable to escape the swarm. He eventually died from the stings.

“I wish I would have come home and he would have already passed away so that I didn’t have to see him passing away in front of me,” Seagroves said.

Seagroves said she and her husband were looking for a pet when they first started dating, and Mika was the first addition to their family.

Franklin County Animal Control Director Taylor Bartholomew said the dog’s death was a first.

“We’ve never had an incident of this kind,” he said. “It’s new to us.”

Seagroves said the bees were kept behind her house on her neighbor’s farmland for the past two months to help cucumbers grow. On Monday, before the attack, the bees were moved.

Jeffrey Lee, who owns the insects, said he loves dogs and was upset to learn about what happened.

“I’m just truly sorry about the whole situation,” Lee said. “If I knew there was a dog there, I would have moved the bees differently.”



Lee said he thought the house was abandoned and had not been notified by the farm owner who rented his bees that there were people in the house.

“It was a lack of communication,” he said.

The Franklin County Animal Shelter director gave Seagroves a free puppy to try to make up for the loss, but Seagroves said the matter of Mika is still unresolved.

“We don’t feel like it’s over because we lost a part of our family and I believe that is worth something,” she said.

Animal control officers said the case remains under investigation and they should know soon whether any charges will be filed. Meanwhile, the state Department of Agriculture is testing the bees to figure out why they acted so aggressively.

Just how does one own a bee? For that matter, just how the hell does one RENT bees?

I don't really believe in animal ownership, in a way. Kinda hippie of me. I will refer to "my" dog, "my" horse, "your"cat (because I damn well wouldn't keep one), but I look at it as more of a relationship. I don't own my sister, but she's MY sister. I don't own my son, but he's MY son. I don't own Cinder, but she's MY fiancee. But does this concept of passive possession even really apply to bugs?

Do I own the spiders under my house? May I rent them out to someone?

i just saw this car for sale. It's a Subaru Outback. I stopped to look at it. It's a beauty. I want it really bad. My son is looking into the specifics of that particular car since he works for an insurance company and can find out all kinds of info on it. If I decide to buy it and can get it cheap enough, I'll keep my Honda, too. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures.

If you could, I think you would have already done just that.

That is a tragedy, but it just illustrates what I have already said. Ignorance can be tragic. I don't think any dog should be chained up all day, and I never move my bees during the day which could cause exactly the situation that happened here.

Yes, it does. As a matter of fact all you need to do in order to be a beekeeper is to provide them with a good place to hang out and then you can move that colony around as you wish, even renting it out. They will do what they naturally do wherever you put them.

Good luck with that.
