Hippies Hold Memorial Service for 50,000 Dead Bees

Flickr/Reader of the Pack

They say that bees are becoming an endangered species. If bees are removed from the food chain, then we are in trouble. Portland hippies are gathering on Sunday with a memorial service for 50,000 “murdered” bees.

According to the Mother Nature Network

While massive bee die-offs are troubling no matter where they take place, I suppose that the over 50,000 victims — including 25,000 bumblebees along with honeybees and ladybugs — of last week’s grisly api-cide in a Target parking lot were lucky to have perished, during National Pollinator week no less, in the vicinity of Portland, Ore., a town that cares about all of Earth’s creatures; a town the fosters bio-diversity atop big box stores; a town that is willing to hold memorial services for slain insects.
Yep, a memorial service for the dearly departed Wilsonville bees — subject to what’s believed to be the largest documented bee death in the Western United States — is in the works.
