The Park City Police Department in early June responded to a series of calls involving either pets or wild animals in what was a week of reports of dogs, moose, ducks and a crane.
Complaints about loose dogs are commonplace in Park City and moose are seen on a regular basis. But it seems unusual for the Police Department to log cases with such a variety of animals in one week.
The cases included: on Saturday, June 8 at 5:37 p.m., the police received a complaint that a dog had been barking all day somewhere along Meadows Drive. The person told the police the barking had been going on for months. on June 8 at 12:24 p.m., a woman was seen in the field outside the Park City Library and Education Center with two dogs off leashes. An officer informed the woman of the leash law and mentioned the location of the Quinn’s Junction dog park. on June 8 a dog was reported to be off a leash on the 3000 block of Meadows Drive. on Friday, June 7 at 8:53 a.m., a duck and several ducklings were spotted on a porch on the 400 block of Marsac Avenue. The person who contacted the police was concerned. on Thursday, June 6 at 10:17 a.m., a dog was reported to be off a leash on the 1200 block of Park Avenue. on Wednesday, June 5 at 3:05 p.m., four youngsters were reportedly seen in a field at the McPolin Farm, apparently attempting to catch a young crane, the police were told. on June 5 at 8:20 a.m., a cow moose and a calf were spotted off Kearns Boulevard in the vicinity of PC Hill. on Tuesday, June 4 at 8:04 p.m., an injured bird was found in a yard on the 2300 block of Lucky John Drive. The person wanted the Police Department to respond. on Monday, June 3 at 9:32 p.m., a driver hit a deer at the intersection of Park Avenue and Prospector Drive.
