Has there ever been a situation in which calling government authorities has worked out well for innocent people or animals?
Paddington residents may be asking themselves that question today after officials from the Sydney suburb murdered 50,000 European honey bees because a resident complained.
Locals who had become accustomed to seeing the massive bee hive were horrified to find thousands of dead bees beneath the hive and across the road. Residents say that the hive was no threat to anyone and that most residents enjoyed its presence and liked to watch the hive grown. Residents say that there was no need to kill the bees when they could have been relocated which is common practice in Australia.
A spokesperson for the Woollahara Municipal Council stated that the Council had attempted to call a beekeeper and did not immediately hear back. Thus, apparently deeming a hive that had grown from nothing to 50,000 bees with no complaints from residents, a dire emergency, the council called Pest Control. All this on the alleged complaint of one alleged resident.
While it may be true enough that a resident complained about the hive (there’s always one in every group), it is interesting that every time an “officer” or “official” wants to harass, search or kill something they do so on the basis on resident responses that are always anonymous and often come from communities in which residents don’t seem to have complaints.
Like a true drone, the spokesperson stated that, “Pest Control would have done an assessment on the best way to handle the situation.”
No doubt, if Pest Control had a spokesman, he would say, “Pest Control did an assessment on the best way to handle the situation.” If residents decide to follow this situation up to higher levels, they should expect to hear about many “assessments” and “best ways to handle situations.”
In the end, Doug Purdy of the Urban Beehive, stated that, “some people are concerned bees are unsafe, but like any insects, if you respect them they will respect you…if you come across a swarm of a hive, contact your local beekeeping association and they’ll be able to tell you whether they can take the bees away.”
Or, you can call your local government which will promptly make an “assessment” and find “the best way to handle the situation” which will generally involve murdering the bees.
