Today from Reuters:

A lorry containing 330 crates of bees, about 12 million of them altogether, overturned on a major highway near the town of St Leonard, New Brunswick, in Eastern Canada on Monday, setting free thousands of irritated stinging insects. Police sealed off the vehicle and called for expert help with the millions that were left inside.

“If there’s anyone in St Leonard who is allergic to bees, we’re recommending they leave town for a couple of hours,” Strong [a spokes man for the mounties] told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
