Horse Herd at Large

Caution advised as a herd of horses is at large in Lac Ste. Anne County. A herd of horses has been spotted running loose in the area of Highway 765 in Lac Ste. Anne County south of Highway 43. The herd has reignited concerns about vehicle safety in the area following a series of collisions, including a fatality collision in past weeks.

RCMP and Provincial resources have developed a plan with local residents to capture the animals and relocate them to a safe environment. The project got underway Wednesday December 7, 2016, but until this project is complete, motorists are urged to please proceed with caution on area roads.

In Alberta, according to the Stray Animals Act, when stray livestock is trespassing on land, the owner or occupier of the land may capture them or authorize someone else to do so and confine them in an appropriate place for an inspector to identify them. If livestock is captured, there is a requirement for a statement to be provided to an inspector within 48 hours, including the circumstances of the capture and expenses incurred in connection with the capture.

Anyone finding livestock running at large in the County is first asked to contact the brand inspectors at 403-783-6202. In urgent circumstances, reporting can be made to the local RCMP detachment.
