Puppies Tied To CA Tree Under Bees, 3 Die, 2 Hurt [View all]

(06-08) 17:02 PDT FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) --

Animal services officials are seeking a suspect who tied five puppies to a tree under an active beehive in San Diego County. Three of the dogs were found dead and two were critically injured.

County spokeswoman Tracy DeFore says firefighters discovered a gruesome scene when responding to a suspicious fire in a Fallbrook field Thursday at about noon.

Approximately 25 feet from the fire, the puppies were found under a tree, bound to its trunk.

Two 5-month-old Jack Russell Terriers died from strangulation, most likely a result of their desperate attempts to escape the swarm of bees. A five-month-old Rottweiler died from unknown causes.
