Title of work Winter’s Sleep
On a cold night, a rat broke into the beehive to seek shelter. Hundreds of bees attacked the rat and killed it. In order to protect their hive from decay, the bees covered the carcass in beeswax (Propolis), completely sealing it. The next spring the beekeeper found the mummified rat, which looked like it was still alive.
