A motorist was pulled over on Interstate 90 near Missoula, Montana, recently with thousands of bees in his car.
The Montana Highway Patrol received a call on May 22 from another motorist who stated the inside of the car had bees all over the windows and flying throughout.
The vehicle was driving all over the road.
When troopers stopped the car, the driver told them that they were “Russian Honey Bees” and harmless. There were five hives and thousands of bees inside the car.
The state Apiarist was contacted and troopers learned that although a very unsafe way to transport bees, the driver needed no permits to transport the bees through the state. The driver was issued with a citation for careless driving.
