A truck bed was found near the Saskatchewan Interior in a remote area where the region’s Big Thunder Mountain Range is found.
RCMP say the bed was discovered on Sunday.
RCMP said it was a single-use bed.
“This is the first time we have ever seen this bed in the Big Horn, and the fact that we have it in that area, it is certainly a significant find,” said Sgt. Brian Johnson of the Big Thunder RCMP.
The bed is being examined by the company that manufactured it.
The company that produced it, CTV Canada, says they were working on a trailer with a single bed in it.
They were in the process of changing a trailer for use in the area.
The trailer was located at the intersection of the Alberta Highway, and Highway 11, and was parked at a logging camp about 500 metres from the highway.
It was last inspected in July.
The truck bed has a diameter of 12.4 metres.
Johnson said the company has a number of people working on the project, and it is a significant piece of the project.
“We’re still working on that trailer, which is about 20 kilometres from where we found it,” he said.
“But we are getting closer and closer to having that bed in there.”
He said they are confident it is safe.
“They were able to secure that trailer.
We don’t know if it was the driver or the truck that was able to get there, but we’re confident that we’re going to be able to safely get that trailer,” he added.
He said the project will have to be scaled back to a single trailer to avoid accidents.
The Big Thunder Region covers about 70,000 square kilometres of land.
