ANGRY bees attacked villagers in southwestern Niger, putting more than 40 in hospital and killing livestock
Gotta Love News from Niger.
The bees swarmed into Dake-Garka village after a gust of wind broke the tree branch that had held their nest for more than half a century, sending panic-stricken people fleeing into the bush, radio reports said.
More than 40 villagers, including 14 children, were admitted to emergency wards of the regional hospital in Birni-N’Konni, it said.
A horse and a donkey died of stings while 95 goats and sheep were left paralysed.
Hours after the invasion, many residents were still afraid to return to their bee-besieged homes, village head Chaibou Abdoulkarim told Anfani.
