April 22, 2014
The Park City Police Department last week logged at least three cases of an elk herd seen along S.R. 224, including one involving teens reportedly chasing the animals.
On Sunday, April 20, a herd of elk was seen at or close to the S.R. 224-Meadows Drive intersection at 1:50 a.m.
On Saturday, April 19 at 8:08 p.m., a herd of elk was spotted along S.R. 224, across the state highway from the McPolin Farm. The police were told a white pickup truck stopped and three boys appearing to be teenagers got out and chased the animals. The person who contacted the police was worried one of the teens would force the elk into the road.
On Monday, April 14 at 6:31 a.m., a herd of elk was seen on the shoulder of the road at or close to the S.R. 224-Meadows Drive intersection. The person who contacted the police was worried a driver could hit an animal if the herd crossed the street.
The police, meanwhile, last week received at least two reports of drivers possibly hitting deer. On Friday, April 18, a driver might have hit a deer at or close to Quinn’s Junction at 4:41 p.m. On Monday, April 14, a driver may have hit a deer along S.R. 224 at 9:47 p.m.
