The truck of milk and honey

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.
