Bees Attack 44 Children in South Africa; 4 Critically Injured

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(JOHANNESBURG) -- Forty-four children were sent to the Hospital after a swarm of bees attacked them on Friday.

The pre-school group of 80 children between the ages of 2-6 was visiting Bunny Park near Johannesburg. After an afternoon spent playing with the rabbits, the children were waiting to get back onto their school bus, when a massive swarm of bees descended upon the group.

Forty-four of the children were stung and went to the hospital for treatment. Four of the children were critically injured.

Police do not know what prompted the swarm to attack, but they said they did not believe that the attacking bees were the infamously aggressive Africanized honey bees, more commonly known as killer bees.

Bunny Without Ears Found Near Japanese Nuclear Plant

File photo. Digital Vision/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- A newborn bunny has been discovered without ears in Namie City, Japan, just outside the 18-mile exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Though scientists say there's no evidence the rabbit's defect was caused by radioactivity, it has become a symbol of people's fears of radiation after the Fukushima plant was damaged by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami in March.

The rabbit was found in May by 56-year-old Yuko Sugimoto.
