Mat,

While that might be true, it does not support your original statement because it is unrelated.

Those same bees, wherever they are, are "killer bees" even when they haven't killed someone.

"They killed a dog and a horse - does the death have to be human?"

Does a whale become a killer whale after killing a dog and a horse?

But 'Killer Bees' are mixed Brazilian / African bees and haven't reached Europe, only living in the States.

Okay, not question - original statement.

An animal death would count if it is physically comparable to a human, venom-wise. Smaller animals are more easily killed than bigger ones. Horse definitely counts.

However, killer bees are defined by behavior and species, not by death count, so the original question is invalid.

They are not killer bees unless they've killed someone.....
