Freelance videographer Al Signori provided KOLD News 13 with some footage of the attack, saying it was one of the worst bee attacks he has ever filmed, the station says. Signori was with "The Bee Killer," Reed Booth, responding to the call of a huge hive found in an outbuilding of the farm in Bisbee, KOLD says. Booth says the hive weighed about 200 pounds and was home to more than 250,000 Africanized killer bees.
The video showed a big swarm of bees buzzing around a hog and stinging it. Farm owner Jane Hewitt was stung several times on her face and arms when she tried to save the animals, the station says.
