The Park City Police Department received a series of reports of moose sightings in the city last week, including two in Park Meadows.

Moose populate the mountains surrounding Park City and sightings are occasionally reported to the police. It appears two of the sightings might have involved the same moose family since the reports were from people at nearby locations.

On Saturday, Oct. 13 at 4:46 p.m., the police received a report from someone on Lucky John Drive that a calf moose had been separated from its family. The adult moose went through a backyard while the calf stopped along Holiday Ranch Loop Road. Summit County Animal Control was contacted.

On Friday, Oct. 12 at 3:19 p.m., the police received a report in the same vicinity -- Little Kate Road close to Holiday Ranch Loop Road -- where a cow moose and a calf were seen in the neighborhood.

On Thursday, Oct. 11, a cow moose and two calves were spotted on the street on Deer Valley Drive. It was not clear from public police logs where along Deer Valley Drive the animals were seen.

On Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 6:18 p.m., someone told the police three moose were spotted at the entrance to the Glenwood Cemetery, on the edge of Thaynes Canyon. People were approaching the animals, the police were told.
