    Vandalized hives

    I live in Southern New Mexico, close to the Texas Border in a small town called Anthony. There is 40+ beehives that are between O’Hara RD and Washington by Hwy 28 that have been totally vandalized.
    If someone knows who the owner is, tell him to contact me –or give me permission to go get his hives together. It is a total mess and skunks are dining on the honey and bees.

    You could try the gis mapping for your area. Just google "your city" and "GIS" it should give you the tax listing for that tract of land, then go to the white pages with the name and find the phone number.

    if you have one??? you likely need to contact the state of New Mexico's apairy inspector. he should have some idea of who the hives belong to.

    are there any brand on the boxes?

    do you have bears in the vicinity?
