The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of reports involving wildlife sightings, including several moose reports in Prospector.
Two moose apparently spent time in Prospector last week, including stopping in the commercial district.
On Friday, June 6 at 3:28 p.m., two moose were seen on the 1700 block of Sidewinder Drive. Earlier that day, at 11:34 a.m., two moose were seen on the 1900 block of Prospector Avenue. They were on a patch of grass between a residential building and a hotel. People were taking pictures of the animals, the police were told.
At 8:35 a.m. that day, meanwhile, two moose were spotted behind a restaurant on Prospector Avenue. The person who contacted the police was concerned for the welfare of the moose.
On Tuesday, June 3 at 9:08 a.m. a moose was seen in a vacant lot at or close to the intersection of Little Bessie Avenue and Calumet Circle. People stopped to look at the animals, the police were told.
At least two other wildlife reports did not involve moose.
On Saturday, June 7 at 9:56 a.m., a raccoon was apparently seen in a mailbox in the vicinity of Paddington Drive and Wyatt Earp Way. The animal was stumbling, the police were told.
At 1:16 a.m. on June 6, a deer was seen in the road along Round Valley Drive. At least one of the deer’s legs was snapped, the police were told. The person stopped and put the vehicle flashers on.
