Moose enters fenced horse area in Park City
August 29, 2017
The Park City Police Department last week received another set of reports of wildlife sightings, including additional cases involving moose.
In one of the moose reports, an animal entered a fenced area where horses are kept, the police were told. The case was reported at 6:29 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23 on Aspen Springs Drive and involved a young moose. The police were told a cow moose believed to be the animal's mother and another young moose were outside the fence.
The day before, meanwhile, on Tuesday, Aug. 22, a moose was seen walking on Prospector Drive in the direction of S.R. 224. On Monday, Aug. 21, meanwhile, a cow moose and calf were spotted on the Park Meadows Country Club golf course. They were off Lucky John Drive, the police said.
At least two traffic accidents involving collisions with deer were reported last week as well. One was logged on Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 8:27 p.m. on S.R. 224. No one in the vehicle was injured, but public police logs did not provide information about the deer. In another case, reported on Tuesday, Aug. 22 at 9:31 p.m., a driver apparently hit at least two deer on S.R. 248.
The moose sightings continued a string of cases over the past three weeks.
