Dangerous Wildlife Encounters Part One Killer Bee Attack

Episode 38 Dangerous Wildlife Encounters Killer Bee Attack

In this first part of a three part series about dangerous wildlife encounters, I tell the story about a short day hike I did with my dogs while looking for a geocache.  We accidently stirred up a bee hive hidden among the boulders below the trail.  I relate the nervous few minutes that followed and our race back to the truck to escape the bee attack.

I also talk about the history of Africanized Bees and relate true stories of attacks in the southwest.  I let you know what to do if you’re atacked and how to escape with help from Desert USA‘s great website.  I’m including links to a You Tube Video about Killer Bees you’ve got to see and an interesting website about Bees, Wasps and other stinging insects called Comming Back Alive.

Music featured in this episode is from Get Three Coffins Ready and Tom Smith from the Podsafe Music Network.
