Punish Boys Who Allegedly Killed a Half Million Bees

Target: Patrick Jennings, District Attorney for Woodbury County, Iowa

Goal: Demand that the boys who allegedly destroyed 50 beehives, killing a half million bees, receive the maximum penalty by law.

A half million bees died after their hives were allegedly destroyed in a violent act of vandalism. The hives belonged to a small Sioux City honey business and incurred more than $60,000 in damages. Demand justice for these innocent bees.

“Bees are critical and people are conscious of the fact that bees are having a hard time right now and facing some real challenges,” stated Justin Englehardt, the owner of Wild Hill Honey. A half million bees tragically died when two boys, ages 12 and 13, reportedly knocked over 50 hives on Englehardt’s property. Though the crime took place in a secluded area, police were able to use leads from the public to identify the alleged offenders.

The police charged each of the boys with criminal mischief in the first degree and agricultural animal facilities offenses and burglary in the third degree, among other charges. Sign below and demand that these boys receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear County Attorney Jennings,

A half million bees were reportedly killed in a shocking case of vandalism. The offenders destroyed fifty beehives that belonged to a small honey making business, police stated. We demand justice for these poor bees.

Sioux City police charged two boys with three felonies, including agricultural animal facilities offenses and burglary in the third degree, after they allegedly destroyed 50 beehives. The destruction was reportedly part of a plot to vandalize Wild Hill Honey, a small honey making business. The business suffered $60,000 in damages and all of the bees inside of the hives perished, police stated. Thanks to leads from the public, police arrested the 12 and 13-year-old suspects.

This destruction not only devastated a business, but it also killed a thriving population of bees in a time when bees are extremely vulnerable. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. Little punk asses need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law now so they don’t grow up to be killers and rapists. They have to be shown there are consequences to their actions or they will continue on this path.

  2. The little shits deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law and the parents also held responsible for the damage their bloody brats caused! Perhaps then more parents will be keener to know what their charming children are up too if they are also held accountable.


  4. This is exactly the matter with our world today. Why would these Kids think is is OK to kill all these bees and this mans property?? The parents of all these kids must also be held accountable. Maybe then this kind of crap would stop if they hold the parents responsible also. MAKE THEM PAY FOR ALL THE LOSSES, MAKE THEM ALL WORK AT THE BUSINESS IF HE REBUILDS HIS BUSINESS, IF NOT MAKE THEM ALL DO COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR A FEW YEARS.

  5. These young thugs have a lot to answer for and their parents who clearly have not taught them right from wrong. Apart from vandalism we cannot afford to lose bees in these numbers. There’s a shed load of money involved and their feckless parents should get the the bill or face jail. If they were my kids they wouldn’t be sitting down any time soon.Criminals in the making- if you don’t sort them out now you will have yourselves to blame.

  6. Track and kill, this human shit does not deserve to live
    So much sick in the head you have to exterminate
    scum of the earth

  7. They should go to jail in the act of justice!! what a morons, stupid blockheads! bastards!!!!! they should pay for every bee’s life!

  8. These subhuman most likely children of Satan are on the road to progressively more evil and bigger crimes if not stopped now.

  9. Why am I signing a petition to have these boys punished? Are you kidding me. They need to be taught a very valuable lesson here. What they did is horrible & they will continue down this road. Stop them NOW before they do more & I can promise you they will. This is common sense here. Who ever has the head nod on what to do about this. There is only one thing to do. Stop them now from harming anything or anyone else because they will.

  10. Imagine if those two bastards started so early in life, what can you expect of them when they grow up?
    Punish them as criminals not as ‘minors’…
