RCMP Officers A Career of Diversity
DEMARAIS, AB – The RCMP always get their ‘man’. This weekend, the RCMP in Demarais Alberta took that mantra to a new level. The RCMP got their goat.
The case demonstrates some of the variety that rural RCMP officers face across Canada.
Desmarais RCMP were called to a report of a found Goat near the North Wabasca lake on August 24, 2013. The Goat was taken in by the local S.C.A.R.S. animal rescue and provincial SPCA advised. If you are or aware of anyone missing a goat, please contact Cst. Stephanie Butterill of the Desmarais RCMP at 780-891-3768.
It might sound funny, but the tasks that RCMP officers across Canada do on a daily basis are extremely varied. Officers are busy at all levels of fighting crime, and in community relations. From protecting the Prime Minister, fighting organized crime, investigating international incidents, all the way to saving a missing or lost goat.
It is a job with certain variety.
