    Officials Confirm Killer Bee Attack On Florida Woman

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A woman was attacked by Africanized honeybees in December, the first such documented killer bee attack in Broward County, officials said.



    Nicole Sinder, 18, was washing her dog behind her Fort Lauderdale home on Dec. 26 when thousands of bees swarmed around her and began to sting.



    "There's these bees in our backyard. They attacked all of us. They're in the whole house, they're all over the house, and ... we don't know what to do," Sinder said in her frantic 911 call.



    The attack was confirmed Tuesday as the work of Africanized honeybees, Gerald Hayes of the Florida Department of Agriculture told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel

    Pretty amazing how they have spread---A few years they spread from Texas, then to New Mexico and Arizona, arriving in Southern California in 2003--In 2004 they burst thru East Texas into Louisiana, and then in Florida in 2005-----It all started 50 years ago when a biologist in Brazil interbred European honeybees with the more aggressive and dangerous Southern African bees--They then spread northward thruout South and Central America and then into Mexico where dozens of people have been killed over the years--They are so aggressive that,when disturbed, even if you jump into a pool and go underwater, they will still wait for you to surface

    What happened to the dog? Some of the attacks here in SoCal have been fatal to pets.
