A swarm of bees attacked and killed a North Hollywood, Calif., family's dog after a neighbor cut down a tree that housed a hive Saturday.

According to KTLA, the man fled down the street, but Babe, the 5-year-old pitbull, could not get away in time. Neighbors said that small children were playing in nearby yards at the time, but no one was hurt.

“We’ve all got kids and dogs,” one neighbor told the station. “Luckily they didn’t hurt any kids, but it’s terrible they hurt a dog.”

Los Angeles firefighters responded and sprayed foam on the bees to kill them, but the threat will remain until what remains of the tree is removed. It's yet unclear whether the insects were honey bees or the more aggressive, Africanized variety.

Hmm.. I don't see how this is unique. I can see this happening quite often.

It's terrible that the dog got killed but it could have been much worse.

I'm a bit surprised that some kind of charges haven't been brought against the person who cut the tree.
