    I'm thinking "someone" may have been stung by the bees, got PO'd about them having a bee business there, got drugged up, got a friend and decided to "stick it to them." Or some such. I think it's a local person/people, not an outside PETA or other freak.

    Bee Nazis? Dunno about middle of the road liberals, sounds like an oxymoron to me.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for honey bees, so I was very reluctant to look at this thread. Like a lot of you, I hope the creep(s) get caught and dealt with severely.

    There are black bears in that part of the state, it sits on the Missouri River, bears come down out of the Dakotas, following the rivers. We have them here locally every once in awhile, they get lost/confused coming down out of Wisconsin, Minnesota, or the Dakotas looking for food, new territory, etc.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Yes, actually I do know this, but the useless eater probably didn't know this and whether the trees are harmed or not wasn't the point it was the outright hypocrisy. My point was a tree cannot defend itself from a human, but honeybees can defend themselves against humans. I don't know if maple trees can pick up fungal infections during sugar season or not.

    Quite a few of the animal rights groups do, actually. They believe that the bees are being enslaved by uncaring bee keepers.
