Bee stings kill horse

RIVERSIDE, Calif., July 28 (UPI) -- Swarms of bees killed a horse Thursday afternoon in Southern California in an attack that may have been triggered by fly repellent, authorities said.

The horse's owner was seriously injured by stings as well, the Los Angeles Times reported. Riverside County Animal Services officers found the horse dead after the owner, being treated at a local hospital, asked for someone to be sent to look at the animal.

The stinging in Riverside may have been set off by the fly repellent, animal control officers said. The chemical apparently sent bees swarming from two hives.
