County Sheriff’s Report

A group of hunters who shot two cow elk Tuesday near Rockport reservoir had permits and permission from the property owner, authorities say.

Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources had issued the men "depredation" tags in order to trim herds in the area so animals don’t bother property owners in the Bridge Hollow area, Summit County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said.

Meanwhile, when deputies arrived at the home of a 44-year-old woman in the Snyderville Basin last week she was threatening herself with a kitchen knife, Farnsworth said.

"She was upset and seemed to be depressed," he said, adding that, "We took the knife and they ended up taking her down to the University Hospital to be evaluated."

Other calls received by county dispatchers included:

No injuries were reported as a result of a traffic accident that involved two vehicles in western Summit County on Jan. 7 at 9:14 a.m.

"Sometime during the night the chain had been cut and then they opened up the gate and took the truck out of the impound yard," Farnsworth said, adding that the vehicle was being stored at a business near Parleys Summit. "They know who the registered owner of the truck is and that’s obviously a good starting point for the investigation."
