- Sansa, Pancake, Khaleesi and Drogo were all killed by a swarm of bees last week
- They were attacked at their home in Palmdale, California.
- Their owners are suing their neighbors, who allegedly raised the bees
Two dog owners are seeking to sue their neighbors after their four dogs were attacked and killed by an aggressive swarm of bees 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, Calif., home last Thursday.
Video footage captured on a Ring camera shows Rebecka running to get help for her dogs, two English bulldogs and two Dobermans named Sansa, Pancake, Khaleesi and Drogo, while her husband was at work.
She is seen crying and running back into her house in one shot, while another shows a firefighter being called in to deal with the situation as bees buzz around the camera.
Although Rebecka and Daniel took their dogs to the vet, they unfortunately did not survive.
“The house remained quiet. We are missing four members of our family. So it was sad. Everyone was sad,” Rebecka said. KCAL.

The dogs were stung by a swarm of aggressive bees believed to have been kept at their neighbor’s house.
The couple were forced to bury their dogs in their garden as they could not afford to cremate them after costly vet bills.

The couple were forced to bury their four dogs in their garden because they could not afford to cremate them following 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 had to bury them one by one,” Rebecka said.
Rebecka and Daniel are now seeking to sue their neighbors, who they say were keeping bees in their backyard.
A GoFundMe that they set up to pay for the dogs’ medical expenses has raised nearly $4,000 so far.
Earlier this year, a dog was hospitalized after being stung by a swarm of bees more than 800 times in Southern California.
Chance, a pit bull mix, was hanging out with his owner Bryan Engen at their Lake Mathews home when Bryan came across the hive and things got out of hand.
The bees began aggressively attacking Chance, who eventually collapsed to the ground with blood streaming from his face.
He was taken to a nearby veterinarian, where he was treated for broken bones, among other injuries.
