FRANKLIN, Ga. — The Georgia Department of Natural Resources was planning a controlled burn at a wildlife area when they stirred up a massive amount of pollen.

Video shows a helicopter flying through the West Point Wildlife Management Area.

During the flight, huge amounts of irritating, allergy-inducing pollen shoots up into the sky.

The Thursday post on the department's Facebook page humorously says, "Pollen anyone?"

The wildlife management area is located about 65 miles southwest of Atlanta in Troup County.
