Park City police blotter: Deer sightings reported
The Park City Police Department on Friday, July 12, received three reports involving deer that were injured or sick.
The cases were logged in different neighborhoods, meaning it is unlikely the reports involved the same animal.
A young deer was seen injured on Solamere Drive at 6:48 p.m. An unspecified animal had possibly bitten the deer, the police were told. The deer could not stand.
Just earlier, at 6:32 p.m., a young deer was reported behind a house on Eagle Pointe Court. The police were told the deer appeared to be sick and may have been seeking shade.
An injured deer was also seen in the vicinity of the intersection of Deer Valley Drive and Aerie Drive at 7:53 a.m. The deer had been hit by a driver and needed to be put down, according to police logs.
The Police Department regularly receives reports of deer in places across Park City.
