Pit bull hailed a hero after saving boy from bees

An Oregon City family is calling their pit bull a hero after it saved an 8-year-old boy from a swarm of bees.

On Tuesday evening, a group of kids were playing near a creek down a steep embankment behind their apartment complex when one of the kids stepped on a rotten log, unleashing the swarm of bees.

The kids tried making their way back up the hill toward home for help, but 8-year-old Jesse-Cole Shaver couldn't.

Luckily, that's when "Hades" did her doggone best to help, grabbing Jesse-Cole by the leg of his pants.

"Hades saw me and came and dragged me up to the grass and stopped and let me crawl on her back and took me to my mom," Jesse-Cole told Fox 12.

His mother, who did not want to be identified, says she was in her car when she heard the kids screaming and running up the hill surrounded by bees. She was astonished to see her dog dragging her son to safety, after he'd already been stung at least 24 times.

"A couple of these kids could have gotten really sick or died, I'm sure of it," she told Fox 12.

Her daughter, Jasmine Jones, 14, was stung five times and is allergic to bees, so she ran to grab her EpiPen while a neighbor called 911. Both children were taken to Willamette Falls Hospital for treatment and were released after a few hours.

"Oh, I thank my puppy," their mother added. "I'm so glad we adopted her."

The kids say they won't go back down the trail behind their apartment ever again.

Not to pick at it, but not bees.... yellow jackets maybe which are wasp. I have kept "bees" way to long to believe this. It's no different than the media and pitbull attacks. :poop:

Unless it is those hybrid African bees. They are far more aggressive than your average honey bee and very prevalent on the west coast due to humans meddling with nature.

hahahah no shit hash, thanks for clarifying. Bees aren't a generic term and yellow jackets are a kind of bee? Or no Bees are Bumble bees only and yellow jackets and hornets are three different things?
