MONTANA — Police responded to an unusual call in Montana after reports of an erratic driver with thousands of loose bees in the car.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, someone called 9-1-1 late last month to report a red car driving all over the road and said bees were flying around the car.

Troopers found the vehicle a short time later and pulled over the driver.

The bees were identified as “Russian Honeybees.” There were five bee hives inside the car.

Officers contacted a state wildlife official who called this “a very unsafe way to transport bees,” but said the driver did not need permits to do so.

The driver was cited for careless driving and released.
