Don't limit liberty with bee ordinance

Forsyth County News
Sunday’s paper carried a letter from Patricia Wykoff in which she argued that our local government would be shirking from its duty to protect the citizens from the dangers of honeybees if it were to de-regulate beekeeping and no longer consider bees to be like livestock. She claimed that without specific laws regulating the keeping of animals and insects, the government would be without power to offer relief to a property owner who cannot reasonably enjoy and use his property because of swarms of angry or desperate and neglected bees housed on neighboring properties.
