A hot dog cart was swarmed by bees and the police had to deal with it. Sounds fun, right?
Tourists visiting New York's Times Square were able to sight-see at an unusual temporary landmark -- a hot dog cart covered in bees.
The New York Police Department confirmed its official beekeeper was dispatched at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to remove hundreds of bees that swarmed around a hot dog cart at 43rd and Broadway.
"Fear not, New Yorkers and tourists. Midtown Manhattan is all abuzz about #NYPD's ability to bee a full-service organization. Right now, we're humanely, & safely, handling the @NYPDBees swarm in @NYPDTimesSquare," Police Commissioner James O'Neill tweeted.
Officers cordoned off the area Tuesday afternoon while the beekeeper used a vacuum to collect the insects.
The NYPD said the bees would be humanely re-hived.
Here’s an apiary where bees that are relocated and kept. We do take pride in removing and relocating our precious pollinators. Yes, the electric fence is to bear proof it from bears as well as curious human consumptionators.
