Two pet dogs were killed after being swarmed up by numerous bees in South Texas. The extremely unusual bee attack took place at a residence on Thursday morning. The two dogs and a few locals were attacked by the bees, which were later determined to be Africanized honey bees. According to city authorities, the bees' behavior was unusual for them as they typically don't act aggressively unless threatened or provoked.

The [dog's owner] led me into the house where the canines were, and the patio was covered in a large number of dead bees, an official told the media, noting that the man had sliding glass doors, and there were bloody paw prints and muddy footprints from the dogs' desperate attempts to enter the home.
Although the house was empty, it was obvious that someone had attempted to conceal it with foam, he added. No other injuries were recorded once the bee hive was removed.
