The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of animal reports, including moose sightings.

On Friday, July 4 at 2:14 p.m., a cow moose and a calf were seen on the 500 block of Deer Valley Drive, just east of the Old Town roundabout. That morning, at 9:58 a.m., a moose was seen on the 500 block of Deer Valley Drive.

Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, July 1 at 8:55 a.m., a cow moose and a calf were seen at or close to the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Wyatt Earp Way. The calf was apparently behind a fence. The cow was seen charging at the fence, the police were told.

There has been a series of moose sightings in Park City in recent weeks. State wildlife officials in late June tranquilized a bull moose along Kearns Boulevard and released the animal in moose habitat in the Wasatch Mountains.

Other animal reports last week included:

  • on Saturday, July 5 at 1:23 a.m., a driver hit a deer somewhere along the S.R. 224 entryway.

  • on July 4 at 9:24 p.m., a driver hit a deer along the 1300 block of Kearns Boulevard. The police said the injured animal needed to be put down. The animal also created a traffic hazard, the police said.

  • on Tuesday, July 1 at 5:50 a.m., the police received a report of a dog with porcupine quills stuck in its face.
