A grandpa was stung and a dog killed by bees swarming in the backyard of a house in north Houston on Thursday in the 100 block of Coach Road near Aldine Bender Road and Imperial Valley Drive.
“Ace was tied up here and he was over here,” Manuel Jr. said. “He heard him barking so he brought him some water. He heard him barking and yelping again and he saw the bees.”
The bees live in a large oak tree in the backyard.
The elder Rodriguez tried to get the bees off the dog and was pulling him down the street, but it was too late.
