Beekeepers Rescue Bees From Hive Crash Near Madras

 It took nearly 12 hours Thursday for beekeepers to rescue a half billion bees that have been buzzing alongside Highway 97 north of Madras since a truck crash Sunday spilled 200 hives.

KGW reports that bee apprentices from the Central Oregon Beekeepers Association wore protective gear as they carefully picked up each hive and checked it out.

The semi-truck that had been transporting them rolled when it swerved to avoid hitting an animal. The rescued bees have been sent to their original destination.
