What a forklifter!
A Californian beekeeper has reported that 128 of his hives were stolen.
Bruce Beekman, co-owner of Beekman Apiaries, said the stolen bees were worth about $26,000. They were owned by a beekeeper from Wyoming, who had sent them here to help with almond pollination in February.
Tire tracks indicated that the thief used a forklift and flatbed truck. He also knew what he was doing as he took only unbranded hives.
all this is is someone stealing hive that are not branded and probably taking them about 40 miles away and make money on another almond farm.
