Title: Three Canadian Rangers missing in Northern Alberta
Post by: dapaterson on April 30, 2017, 21:53:58
Three of the four hunters who went missing in the northern Alberta wilderness last weekend were members of the Fort Chipewyan Canadian Ranger Patrol.

The Canadian Rangers have been identified as Walter Ladouceur, Andrew Ladouceur and Keith Marten, according to a statement from the Department of National Defence. The fourth hunter has been identified as Keanan Cardinal.

The group left Fort Chipewyan, Alta. – about 200 kilometres north of Fort McMurray – on the evening of April 23 in a boat, which was later found in a river that flows through Wood Buffalo National Park.

On Wednesday, RCMP and Parks Canada shifted their efforts to a recovery operation after failing to find the men in the rugged bush.

Keith Marten and Andrew Ladouceur were 15-year members of the Canadian Ranger Patrol. Walter Ladouceur joined in 2016. All three are said to be “highly experienced outdoorsmen.” The defence department notes they were on their own time when they began the hunting trip.

One of the four hunters who went missing in the northern Alberta wilderness last weekend was found dead on Sunday afternoon, according to Mikisew Cree First Nation Chief Steve Courtoreille.

Courtoreille told CTV Edmonton that Walter Ladouceur was found dead upriver from where the hunting party’s boat was previously found in Wood Buffalo National Park.

If anyone has the skills to survive in the bush to await rescue, its our Rangers.
