Honeybees ate my baby

Here in Austin, TX, beekeepers are quite lucky that keeping bees is actually legal. In a lot of large urban cities, beekeeping is illegal and can come with hefty penalties if caught. That doesn’t stop a lot of people, but there is always the risk they could face fines or even destruction of their hives.

Luckily, major urban centers are coming around and even New York City is considering revoking laws “lumping the honeybee¬†together with hyenas, tarantulas, cobras, dingoes and other animals considered too dangerous or venomous for city life.”
