An angry swarm attacked and killed a pit bull in its own backyard, and neighbors worry these bees could easily do the same to a child.

Imagine your home swarmed with bees. That's what Clyde Howard has been living with for days.

Tuesday was the last straw for him. His beloved dog Breezy was killed.

"My dog was covered up with bees. I'm looking through the window, but I couldn't just sit there and watch so I just went out there and untied her," Howard explained. "She was just covered with bees and I got out the water hose and next thing I know they were already inside the house. Over 100 bees. She died three hours later."

Howard has called his landlord; he called the city; he eve called the fire department. He says everybody turned him down.

"I didn't know who to call to so I called some news channel to try to get some help," Howard explained.

Soon afterward, Eyewitness News came over with a pest control company.

Michael Shamsi with Pest Police sprayed the bees, killing tens of thousands of them.

He says the home should be safe for now.
