March 22, 2011
The Park City Police Department last week responded to at least three reports of moose being spotted in the city, with two of them occurring in Prospector.
On Monday, March 14 at 3:10 p.m., the police were called to Samuel Colt Court, where two moose calves reportedly became separated from their mother. A fence was between the mother moose and the calves, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide further details.
Earlier that day, at 10:49 a.m., moose were seen attempting to cross Kearns Boulevard at the 2400 block. Kearns Boulevard is one of Park City’s busiest streets. Public police logs did not provide details, including the number of animals. The animal or animals were crossing toward the Prospector neighborhood, the police were told.
Meanwhile, at 9:56 a.m., two moose were seen in the road on Holiday Ranch Loop Road, the police were told.
Moose sightings occur occasionally in Park City, sometimes after heavy snowfall as they descend from the higher elevations in search of vegetation to feed on.
