PANTEGO (July 27, 2013)--A swarm of an estimated 30,000 bees attacked a North Texas couple as they exercised their miniature horses, stinging the animals so many times that they died.
Kristen Beauregard, 44, was stung about 200 times and her boyfriend about 50 times.
Beauregard said the swarm chased down her and her boyfriend.
She said they were sweeping up piles of bees "like a bad movie."
Firefighters sprayed a foam substance to clear the bees, and dragged the horses to a pasture to be treated by police and paramedics, she said.
A 6-year-old show horse named Chip died before a veterinarian arrived and Trump, a Shetland pony, was taken to a veterinary clinic but also died.
The bees are being tested to see whether they are Africanized or "killer" bees.
