Zombies Invade Montana

 News reports from all over the country were raving about the infection quickly consuming the nation.  People were suffering from flu-like symptoms and quickly dying within a week.  It was suspected that it all began from a cruise ship passenger returning home from a cruise through South America.  He had gotten adventurous chasing down a wild monkey and was supposedly bitten but didn't bother to say anything to anyone before returning to the ship.  The boat returned to Texas without any radio communication and when the ship was disembarked hoards of decaying bloody bodies were crawling and jumping from the ship ravenously attacking the shipyard crew and security.  No living survivors...       

 The Unliving were contained and eventually killed. The Zombie threat was over – we thought. But, the Zombies were bitten by bees and the infection spread first to the bees then to humans as they were bitten and stung.

 Through the summer a giant black cloud of bees came northward from Texas – leaving a swath of new Zombie hoards throughout the widwest. The bees arrived in Montana in the fall: they began spearing through the air and swarming ravenously.  You could hear the flaps of their tiny wings as they swarmed together and grew to cloud the skies with their masses.  First attacking the birds and wild animals, and then our livestock and domesticated animals; then stinging people and biting them as they were walking the streets and working outside.  Eventually hiding in homes and stinging and biting people inside their own houses as people were trying to care for their sick animals and family members.  The virus turned the bees into killer swarms that quickly spread the disease throughout our haven.  No barricade or shotgun was going to slow down this invasion.

Now we're fighting for our lives as we escape from the zombie hoards.  Will YOU survive?
