All manner of substances and animals have spilled from trucks and vans on roads, whether its pigs, paint or horses. However, the worst has just happened in Idaho, USA, when a truck crashed on a motorway and released 14 million bees into the wild.
The bees swarmed to create a massive black cloud and a slick of honey spilled onto the road, taking a day to remove. The loss of bees equates to a loss of around $400,000 as each bee is said to be worth 3 cents.
Fire Chief Kenny Strandberg worried about another problem, “I am worried about the bears coming down now — the grizzly bears,” he said.
