About 40 years ago I moved hives to outer pastures.
One hive package went broken when I lifted it, and hundreds of bees were on me. I rushed to bushes and saw a waterpool in the forest.
I took sphagnum moss, watered it and put it on my head that bees stop stinging.
It was almost dark and looked that there is something in the pool.
Next day I arrived to arrange broken hive and I went to look what was in the pool. It was just born rotten calf of cow. It was dumped into pool.
Its skin was allready loosen.
...joys of beekeeping....
