Moose seen ambling into Park City

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

The Park City Police Department received a few complaints last week about moose ambling into neighborhoods, perhaps as a result of the heavy snowfall.

On Tuesday, Jan. 26, a moose and a calf were seen galloping away from the Park City Mountain Resort area on the 1300 block of Lowell Avenue.

The day before, a moose was reported to be running down S.R. 248 at 8:03 p.m. The animal was east of Prospector, and the police were told it was a hazard for drivers.

Also on Monday, Jan. 25, at 4:35 p.m., two moose were spotted attempting to cross S.R. 224 close to the McPolin Farm. The animals were a traffic hazard, the police were told.

Animals like moose and deer often are seen at the lower elevations of Park City foraging for food after the mountains receive significant snow.
