An Ottawa couple who run a honey business say two of their beehives were stolen over Christmas. Each beehive contains a cluster of about 15,000 bees.
“It was definitely pretty shocking," Gee said. "He’d been there a week earlier."
Marianne and Matthew Gee started their honey business a decade ago, after discovering a colony of honeybees on the side of their house.
"It would have to be someone who knows enough about bees to be interested, but not enough to know not to move them in the winter.”
