Bee Attack in Austin

I really don’t know how I feel about this article about an elderly man being attack by bees. The fact that they still have been unable to locate a hive in the area points to a swarm situation, but swarms are usually pretty docile. I understand bees don’t like lawnmowers, but I haven’t heard of a swarm settling in grass. It could be an Africanized swarm as they tend to be more defensive when swarming, but unless some genetic tests are done, it is very difficult to distinguish an Africanized bee from an European bee.

Obviously this is a terrible event, and I hope the victim recovers, but it would be nice to have some more information on what happened released.
