The Park City Police Department last week received at least two reports of moose sightings inside the city.
On Sunday, March 9, a moose was spotted along Deer Valley Drive heading toward Park Avenue at 7:13 p.m. The animal was trying to cross the road and was impeding traffic, the police were told. The moose was gone when officer arrived.
On Friday, March 7, at 1:59 p.m., meanwhile, two moose were seen close to the McPolin Farm along S.R. 224. The animals appeared to be attempting to cross the state highway. A crowd was gathering to watch, the police said.
The Police Department occasionally receives reports of moose and other wildlife. Moose are common in the area, and the animals are seen once in a while in locations across Park City. Police officers who respond to moose sightings typically attempt to ensure the animals and onlookers are safe.
