Moose seen ambling into town, sightings reported across Park City

The Park City Police Department fielded a series of calls reporting moose sightings in the city, with at least one of the accounts involving a crowd of gawkers.

On Friday, May 7, two of the animals were spotted on Deer Valley Drive. The police said some people gathered to watch. Both the moose and the people eventually left.

On Wednesday, May 5 at 8:13 p.m., two moose were seen ambling down a hillside on Marsac Avenue close to the Old Town roundabout.

On Tuesday, May 4, an accident involving a driver and a moose was reported at 9:59 p.m. The driver hit the moose along the narrow section of S.R. 248 just east of Prospector. The car was damaged, according to police logs. The logs, though, did not provide details about the condition of the moose.

On Monday, May 3 at 5:48 p.m., three moose were seen off Kearns Boulevard close to the Park City Cemetery. One of the animals appeared to be the mother of the other two, the police were told. The three retreated to a nearby hillside.

Moose are common in the Park City area, and sightings are sometimes called into the police.
