Well not giant fire ants, regular sized ones. But I wanted you to pay attention here. I assumed a fire ant was an ant that had too much spicy food for dinner and blasts out fire from its rear end. But apparently a fire ant is like a walking bee that’s a bit of a jerk. If it stings you once, it keeps stinging you and then it gets all its friends and they sting you too.
The moral of this story: I would keep your dogs out of Richmond Parks. Although Max’s hair is so long I don’t think the ants would be able to sting him and would get frustrated and walk home ashamed. However Max would definitely eat one instead.
