Moose, other wildlife spotted in Park City


The Park City Police Department last week responded to several reports involving wildlife, including moose and an injured raccoon.

The cases included:

  • on Sunday, May 3, an injured raccoon was reported on the 500 block of Deer Valley Loop Road at 3:45 p.m. The animal was in critical condition, the police were told. Summit County Animal Control was needed, the police said, but it was not clear from public police logs whether the raccoon was put down.
  • on Saturday, May 2 at 9 p.m., the driver of a shuttle reported seeing a deer carcass along Marsac Avenue close to the runaway-truck ramp.
  • on Friday, May 1 at 7:04 a.m., a moose was seen along S.R. 248. The animal was gone by the time the police arrived.
  • on Thursday, May 30 at 5:37 p.m., a deer was reportedly seen in a backyard along Deer Valley Drive. It appeared to be injured, the police were told. The deer left up a hillside.
  • on Monday, May 27 at 7:22 a.m., two young moose were reportedly seen close to S.R. 224 in the vicinity of the McPolin Farm.

    Deer are plentiful in the Park City area and there is also a notable population of moose. The Police Department receives reports of deer and moose on a regular basis.
