- Sansa, Pancake, Khaleesi and Drogo were all killed by a swarm of bees last week
- They were attacked in their home in Palmdale, California
- Their owners are suing their neighbors who allegedly bred the bees
Two dog owners want to take their neighbors to court after their four pooches were attacked and killed by an aggressive swarm of bees that were allegedly kept and raised by nearby residents.
Daniel Giron and Rebecka Lopez say four of their six dogs were attacked by a swarm in the backyard of their Palmdale, California, home last Thursday.
Video footage captured on a Ring camera shows Rebecka running to get help for her dogs, two English bulldogs and two Doberman pinschers named Sansa, Pancake, Khaleesi and Drogo, while her husband was at work.
In one shot, she was seen running back to her house crying, while in another shot, a firefighter was seen being called to deal with the situation as bees buzzed around the camera.
Unfortunately, while Rebecka and Daniel took their dogs to the vet, they did not survive.
“It was quiet in the house. We miss four of our family. So it was sad. “Everyone was sad,” said Rebecka KCAL.

The couple were forced to bury their four dogs in their backyard as they could not afford to cremate them due to a series of expensive vet bills.
Flowers now mark the spot where the dogs are buried.
“I know it was hard for him and we just had to bury them one at a time,” Rebecka said.
Rebecka and Daniel now want to sue their neighbors who they say were breeding bees in their backyard.
A GoFundMe The fundraiser they created to help pay the dogs’ medical bills has raised nearly $4,000 so far.
Earlier this year, a dog was hospitalized after being stung over 800 times by a swarm of bees in Southern California.
Chance, a pit bull mix, was walking with his owner Bryan Engen at their Lake Mathews home when Bryan tripped over the hive and the situation became uncontrollable.
The bees began aggressively attacking Chance, who eventually collapsed on the ground with blood pouring from his face.
He was taken to a nearby vet where he was treated for his fractures in addition to his other injuries.
