More than 8,000 bees made themselves at home in an abandoned cabinet outside of one Florida sheriff’s office.
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office posted a “punny” take on the incident on their Facebook post saying in part, “Oh, honey! Here’s another buzzworthy story to share, and we’re not pollen your leg. We’ll keep the story short - wouldn’t want to drone on and on...”
The bees were discovered in an abandoned cabinet near the department’s evidence lot, according to the post. Officials said it took less than a week for the bees to set up shop inside of the cabinet.
Officials said that deputies were able to carefully remove the hive and place it into a small, white box for relocation.
“The insects were transported to their new home near Worden Farms and Shell Creek Grove... where they’re meant to bee, and had a great house-swarming party,” sheriff’s office officials said on social media.
