ALVIN, Texas – It was a sad sight to see after a bunch of "hooligans" burned and destroyed dozens of beehives Friday night in Brazoria County, officials said. 

The vandals did major damage to a Brazoria County Beekeepers Association bee yard by dumping them over and setting the hives on fire, officials said. 

Frames of the beehives were found floating in a pond of water with bees still caring for the brood. It is unknown if the queens were killed in the process. 

The club is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest. They are also asking for donations to help the club recover the loss and damage of the property. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office.
