Adult website offers to double reward for arrest of Texas beehive vandals
Adult video streaming website YouPorn is offering to double the reward for the information that leads to the apprehension of those responsible for killing more than 500,000 bees earlier this week.
According to the New York Times, someone torched, toppled and tossed into a nearby pond more than 20 European honeybee hives in Brazoria County, Texas.
The bees have already had a rough go of it in recent years courtesy of pesticides, poor nutrition and a parasite that shortens their lifespan, according to the Times.
“We are deeply alarmed with the news that 500,000 bees were senselessly burned to death at a Texas bee yard this week. The bee population is very important to us,” said YouPorn Vice President Charlie Hughes in a statement.
“We heard of the rewards that are being offered to find the person responsible for this unspeakable crime. We’d like to double what both the Brazoria County Crime Stoppers and the Beekeepers Association are offering, and will be rewarding $12,000 to anyone who turns in this criminal,” Hughes added.
