Man, THAT was a lousy thing for that guy to do...You really dont think of beekeepers as being this way.
However, years ago, there was a guy at the pigeon club who stabbed another member over the results of a race!...Oh yeh,....At the "3rd Bridge", at Lake Arrowhead,( where I fish), during Crappie runs in winter and spring, People get to yellin and hollerin at each other over whos right it is to tie up to the pillars which hold the bridge up over the water! One day, soon, I bet somebodies gonna shoot somebody over these pillars!
I guess theres all kinds of people in all kinds of activities tho...Like Rick said....Keeping bees doesnt make any of us any less human or any more special than anybody else...(Oh,..and YES,......Im one of those people who like to think that beekeeping is a special gift only certain people have!
Killing for honey tho? Sheesh!...Imagine what the little bees would think about this, if they could!
