RCMP cleared in August shooting of reality TV sidekick near Grande Cache


GRANDE CACHE, Alta. – Alberta investigators say two Mounties did nothing wrong when they shot a suspected impaired driver near Grande Cache last August who was a regular character on the reality TV show “Mantracker.”

Curtis Hallock was shot in the leg and arm and required surgery for his wounds.

At the time RCMP said the two officers were trying to pull over a vehicle when they got into a confrontation with the driver.

Alberta government investigators reviewed what happened and forwarded their findings to the Crown.

Cliff Purvis, executive director of the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, says the actions of the Mounties were justified and they will not face criminal charges.

The show’s website described Hallock as “the horse whisperer,” a mountain guide in his mid-30s who has lived off the land near Grande Cache, on the northern edge of Jasper National Park, his whole life.
