A pair of road obstructions were included at the top of the latest Biggar RCMP report.

One came after reports of an abandoned vehicle blocking access in an alley. The other was an equine situation, as members dealt with a herd of horses on a local highway near town.  

"This weekend it was reported the horses were back hanging out on the center line of Highway 4 north again, thankfully there were no collisions to report." shared Biggar detachment commander Sgt. Dereck Crozier in the release.

Another call during the week saw Biggar RCMP almost teaming up with the local fire department. The detachment received word of a skid steer on fire while being transported down Highway 4 south on a trailer. It was not found to be suspicious, and the release states the owner was able to get the fire under control before the fire department arrived. Another call regarding the local highway included at least two CN Rail crossing malfunctions that temporarily disrupted traffic.

The police report described multiple instances caused by this past weekend's full moon, stating that members, "had a few howling at the sight as members assisted with a number of non-criminal calls for assistance". The full moon must have influenced another poor decision, as in another case, a 911 call was received after kids were found playing with a cellphone.

Police dealt first hand with a situation including an intoxicated 52-year-old individual who had over-stayed a welcome at the neighbours. Police shared the situation was diffused without further incident.

In total across the week, there were 26 occurrences responded to by the Biggar Detachment. 11 drivers received tickets following traffic related incidents.

Crozier ended off the report with an important reminder concerning the upcoming weather.

"Enjoy those warmer days we are experiencing for the next week or so, but be cautious as the nights cool, as daytime melting could cause some unexpecting ice at intersections and some highway surfaces."
