One dog died and two others were severely hurt by a swarm of bees that attacked them in the backyard of a home in the San Diego suburb of Chula Vista.

All three dogs were rushed to a local veterinarian; one died at the veterinarian's office, the other two are being kept overnight after being stung by hundreds of bees.

A resident of an adjoining home was treated by paramedics. An extermination company subdued and removed the beehive.
