Hive Of 40,000 Bees Rescued

“A hive of 30,000 to 40,000 honeybees was rescued from a New York park when tropical storm Irene damaged the tree containing the hive.

The bees, which were left unprotected when a hollowed-out branch was ripped from a Fort Greene Park tree, attracted members of two beekeeping groups, New York City Beekeeping and the New York City Beekeepers Association, to rescue the hive.”


Hurricane Irene took more than 30 lives, but we witnessed many heartwarming scenes of individuals and families rescued from raging rivers.

It’s very satisfying when people or even cats and dogs are rescued during a natural disaster. But a story about 40,000 bees rescued isn’t quite as heartwarming, but I guess that the owner of the hives is jumping in joy.

I love honey, so I guess  I’m happy that the bees survived.
