Moose seen close to Main Street as sightings continue

People continue to spot moose in Park City, with the Police Department last week receiving another set of reports of sightings.

According to the Police Department, a moose was seen crossing Deer Valley Drive at 6:58 p.m. on Thursday, May 13. The animal was seen close to lower Main Street.

On Monday, May 10 at 11:57 p.m., someone contacted the police with a report of two moose on Deer Valley Drive. They were on a stretch of the state highway adjacent to lower Main Street. The animals moved off the street.

Earlier that evening, at 9:43 p.m., a mother moose and a calf were seen crossing a road in the direction of Deer Valley Drive on the 1100 block.

There has been a string of moose sightings in recent weeks. They have been seen across Park City, from Old Town to the S.R. 248 entryway. A driver in early May hit one of the animals on the state highway just east of Prospector.

Moose sightings have long been reported regularly in Park City.

Meanwhile, someone reported seeing a beaver off S.R. 248 as the state highway approaches Park City. The report was filed at 6:32 a.m. on Wednesday, May 12. The site is close to a waterway and wetlands.
