A horrifying video shows four dogs getting attacked by a swarm of bees that managed to kill two of the pooches with their stings.
The clip was shot in the backyard of a Brazil home on September 22. One of the dogs whimpers and flinches as he enjoys a afternoon nap.
Soon, the other dogs begin to yell and run as the insects sting them.
The bees become more agitated and fly in front of the CCTV as the swarm grows.
Poor dogs run desperately for shelter and attempt to escape the house but are stopped by the door.
Two of the dogs died from the bee poison after they were unable to escape.
The incident was filmed in the area of Praia do Morro in the coastal town of Guarapari in the south-eastern Brazilian state of Espirito Santo.
Thais Pacheco, the dog’s coowner, said that she had shared custody with her ex-boyfriend. It was in his backyard where the bees attacked them.
The incident happened while the man was at work. He was later informed what had happened by nearby residents.
Pacheco stated that her ex-husband returned home to find several dogs vomiting and some others bleeding.
The biggest dog, a Rottweiler named Suzy, escaped from the property amid the chaos but sadly she did not survive.
Later, she was found dead in a nearby street.
Bob, another dog, also died in the attack. The other animals required urgent veterinary care. One canine is still being monitored at the clinic.
It is not known why the bees suddenly swarmed the home, apparently unprovoked, and attacked the sleeping dogs.
The president of the Regional Council of Veterinary Medicine of Espirito Santo (CRMV), Virginia Hemerich, explained that the deaths of the dogs were probably caused by anaphylactic shock, adding: “A sting can cause a strong reaction.
“Multiple stings can lead to a generalised reaction because of the toxins released by the bees.”
