Alberta RCMP investigate after farmer's tractor filled with oilseed

WILLINGDON, Alta. - Nothing runs like a John Deere farm tractor — unless its fuel tank is filled with canola seed.

RCMP say they got a call from a farmer near Willingdon, Alta., about his tractor that was parked in a field east of Edmonton.

Police say someone apparently drained the fuel from the tractor and then filled the tank and other parts of the machine with oilseed.

RCMP are treating it as a case of mischief.
