A driver in southwest Wales, England, got the shock of his life after being chased around by a swarm of bees for two days! Tom Moses, 41, spotted the unusual sight while driving through Haverfordwest on Sunday evening.
Struck by curiosity and amazement, Moses decided to investigate but suffered several stings in the process. The bees’ aggressive behavior indicated that they were protecting something. He got the message and decided to call professional beekeepers to handle the feisty little warriors.
Roger Burns of Pembrokeshire Beekeepers said the swarm of around 20,000 sparked chaos when their queen got stuck in a car boot and the Moses drove away with the queen unknowingly trapped in the back, resulting in the swarm taking up the chase.
“I think the car owner must have been a bit scared of the swarm that was hanging around and just wanted to get away without realizing they were attracted to the car because of the queen,” he told reporters.
It took a procession of FIVE different beekeepers, park rangers, and passers-by to coax them off into a cardboard box.
“It is natural for them to follow the queen but it is a strange thing to see and quite surprising to have a car followed for two days,” Roger Burns added.
