Hey Cool, Now We Have to Worry About “Murder Hornets”
Asia's giant hornet, also known as the "Murder Hornet" is freaking huge, deadly, and apparently here in the United States for the first time ever. Come on, haven't we been through enough already?
According to CBS News, the hornets made their way to the U.S. for the first time in December, when the Washington State Department of Agriculture verified four reports of sightings. The hornets were also spotted in two locations in British Columbia in the fall.
The reason we're talking about these nasty bastards now is because their life cycle begins in April. That's when the queen wakes up from hibernation and starts scouting out underground dwellings to build her murder armies (colonies).
I have no problem with honey bees or anything like that, they're very calm, cool, and collective. Not the giant hornet, nope, they actually murder honey bees. Not just murder, they decapitate them.
The Murder Hornet doesn't decapitate humans but it does kill an average of 50 people a year in Japan.
In the videos above and below, you'll see what one of these suckers did to Coyote from Brave Wilderness.
