RCMP seek tractor driver who trampled bee hives, buildings
Tractor assailant squishes buildings, bee hives in rural Manitoba
RCMP are looking for suspects after seven buildings and a bee farm were trampled by someone driving a tractor in Gladstone, Man.
Officers said someone used a John Deere excavator to destroy the buildings on a property just west of Bloomfield Colony in the RM of Westbourne in late October.
The driver also took out about eight to 10 bee hives before finally stopping. Officers said the excavator was damaged in the trampling.
Officers said the area is quite remote and few people live near where the destruction took place.
RCMP have not yet released a damage estimate, but anyone with information is urged to contact officers or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
