Arizona (NBC) (05/14/20)— An aggressive swarm of bees killed three dogs in Arizona on Wednesday, fire officials said.

The Tucson Fire Department initially reported that four dogs were killed.

The department said it responded to the incident east of the city shortly before 3 P.M.

It wasn’t immediately clear where the attack occurred or who owned the dogs.

One of the animals died as emergency crews used a foam to kill the insects, the department tweeted.

“We never enjoy killing precious bees, but in these rare cases it is necessary,” the department said.

The remaining dogs were taken to a veterinary clinic, where they later died, the department said.
