… 20,000 bees, to be exact.
Twenty thousand bees hanging out on a New York City sidewalk is not an easy thing to ignore, and crowds quickly began to gather around the huge swarm. There were so many bees that it was becoming difficult for people to walk along the sidewalk, and so eventually a pedestrian put in a call to the New York City Police Department, hoping they could help.
Officer Darren Mays has been working with bees for 11 years, and has his own apiary in the Hudson Valley. He’s been helping rescue bees across the city for years now, and so while everyone else was a bit bewildered encountering 20,000 bees, for Mays, it was just another day.
