Talk about a buzz kill: tens of thousands of dead bees will be mourned on Sunday, June 30, beginning at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of a Target in Wilsonville, Oregon, in which they died.
Just how many of the insects died is apparently a matter of debate: The Oregonian reported an estimated 25 thousand dead bees were found after an aphid pesticide was used on trees, but the people behind the Facebook page called Wilsonville Bees Memorial puts the number at double that.
Organizers want to commemorate the parking lot as the site, "where an estimated 50,000 bees were killed by humans who sprayed the toxic pesticide, Safari."
Rozzell Medina of Portland posted, "We will memorialize these fallen lifeforms and talk about the plight of the bees and their importance to life on Earth."
