Which way again?
Some poor fucker got stung 300-ish times by a killer bee swarm up at Lone Mountain recently, the R-J has info. I, of course, kicked it Luddite style, didn't hear about this, and just got stung also. Narrowly missed getting swarmed as well-think the high winds may have saved my ass.

As is, just one sting has me suffering like an FLDS child. Anyone thinking of climbing at Lone Mtn, Gun Club, Rodeo etc may want to reconsider. They tend to move on after a while but until they do these areas are seriously bad news.

Swarm is probably not the right word here, as a true swarm wouldn't care about near-by people. They're looking for a new home if they're swarming.
And it's actually more likely that their colony is in the area and they're defending it. It could be a longterm issue....
