In Croatia, Bees Are Being Trained to Sniff Landmines


As part of an operation called, honest-to-Jeebus, “Tirimisu” [sic], Professor Nikola Kezic is teaching our favorite stingers to sniff out TNT by combining it with sugar to get them used to the subtle hints of explodeyness underneath. Like the alcohol aftertaste in an Italian dessert

So, hold up a sec…could THIS be the real reason bees are mysteriously dying? They’ve developed a taste for dynamite?

Or is there a preemptive counterattack already underway by the folks who put the landmines there in the first place? I don’t claim to know the truth, but…

I hear there’s some buzz about it.
