That story tells nothing of importance.  They don't mention what she was doing, how she agrivated the bees or even where it happened.  My only fear is that this story will make people be even more cautious of beekeepers.

Well.. just judgeing from the AP headline,  I would guess it was Tucson (because it says Tucson in large emboldened letters)  While I don't agree that every colony in the state is africanized or a hybrid,  I believe the odds are going up daily of having contact with them.   400 stings and then going after someone else would be a pretty aggressive bunch of bees.

Your right about the information.  Not many details.

No, beekeepers.  It seems like everyone around here bears the steriotype that beekeepers are harboring vicious insects.  Oh and, I appearently didn't see the large bold letters.  So, ignore what I said...
