Drunk on smoke: Notre Dame's bees survive cathedral blaze.
Hunkered down in their hives and drunk on smoke, Notre Dame's smallest official residents — some 180,000 bees — somehow managed to survive the inferno that consumed the cathedral's ancient wooden roof. Confounding officials who thought they had perished, the bees clung to life, protecting their queen. "It's a big day. I am so relieved. I saw satellite photos that showed the three hives didn't burn," Notre Dame beekeeper Nicolas Geant told The Associated Press on Friday. "Instead of killing them, the CO2 (from smoke) makes them drunk, puts them to sleep," he explained.
