A 7.5-pound dog was put down Saturday after being stung by about 150 bees in its Pasco backyard. Another dog and a 10-year-old boy were also in the backyard at the time. The other dog was injured but will recover.  The boy dove to the ground and tried to save the dogs.

"Ziggy" was put down to end his suffering from internal injuries.

Experts say bees are extremely irritable during windy weather. It is believed something provoked the bees into believing their near-by hive was threatened.

They also said that had a small child been attacked by the bees the injuries could have been traumatic.
