Leisure Town sounds like Hell

A poor amateur beekeeper has caused a furore in Leisure Town which is administered by Vacaville City Council (I kid you not! These names seem straight out of the Truman Show).

He hadn't realised his bees were causing concern, but when he found out he willing removed them. This was not enough for the zealots of Vacaville City Council who proceeded to pass an ordinance limiting where bees can be kept in dear old Leisure Town.

One part of the ordinance causes me further wonderment:
Keeping wild swarms of bees -- colonies of the insects not established on a hive -- also will be prohibited under the ordinance.
