Dog killed in bee attack in Chula Vista

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A large swarm of bees attacked three dogs in the back yard of a South Bay home Tuesday, killing one of them and seriously injuring two others, authorities reported.

A retirement-age woman who lives at the house in the 1600 block of Ocala Avenue in Chula Vista reported the swarming bees about 1 p.m., Deputy Fire Chief Jim Garcia said.

The resident told arriving emergency crews she had been stung several times but declined medical treatment.

Animal-control officers took the animals to a veterinarian for emergency treatment, he said. One dog suffered a seizure after the attack and died, the dogs' owner said.

A private extermination company was called in to kill the bees and remove their hive.

To help with the dogs' vet bills call Otay Pet Vets at (619) 421-1698
