The Saskatchewan RCMP's Divisional Operations Communications Centre reports they had a busy 2018 taking calls… some of which seemed to “miss the mark."

Here is a list of the Top 10:

1. Endangered species – Caller called 911 as they located two salamanders in their yard and thought they might be endangered.

2. Everything is OK – Someone called 911 to make sure they didn’t do anything wrong and to wish the RCMP officers a Merry Christmas.

3. What’s the delay – Caller called 911 as their fast food delivery order was taking longer than they thought it should.

4. The chase is on – A concerned caller reported a donkey chasing some horses around in the field.

5. Master chef – A dispute over how to cook perogies ended up with our caller calling RCMP for assistance.

6. Mysterious caller – A caller was uncertain as to how a 911 call had been placed from his home. After some discussion, it was determined that it must have been his cat that did it.

7. Who let the dogs out – A call was received requesting RCMP attend a house as the dogs needed to go outside and the door was stuck.

8. No turkey for you – A 911 caller reported that her Thanksgiving turkey was stolen from her house.

9. Unwanted master chef – This upset 911 caller was asking for RCMP assistance as their guest was cooking ribs in the oven.

10. Park between the lines – Someone called 911 to report that a vehicle was parked taking up two handicap parking spaces.

"We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that 911 is for emergencies," said the Saskatchewan RCMP. "In non-emergency situations, the public can call their local RCMP detachment or local police service."
