Aggressive bee hive traps family indoors, attacks dog

TUCSON - A family was trapped inside their south side home after an aggressive bee hive attacked them and their family dog Saturday morning.

Tucson Fire crews responded to a 9-1-1 call from a neighborhood near Irvington and Park.

"[The bees] were stinging my son and stinging the dog and I didn't know what to do," said Sonia Boquez.

Fire crews sprayed foam at the swarm to regain control of the home. Up to that point, Boquez and her family were trapped inside while the bees grew angry.

"I couldn't go to work so I called my work and I told them I have a swarm of bees in my house and I can't leave," Boquez said.

While her kids were stung a few times, everyone managed to get indoors mostly unharmed - with the exception of their German Sheppard "Bane" who had been repeatedly stung by bees.

Fire crews soaked the dog with foam as well to get rid of the swarm he continually tried to outrun.

"Hopefully the dog doesn't die because I don't know how many times he got stung. They were on him all over and hopefully he comes out of it okay -- but we've got to take him to the vet right now to make sure he's okay," Boquez said.
