Park City police blotter

Drivers stop to watch moose

The Park City Police Department last week responded to two reports of moose attracting the attention of drivers.

On Sunday, Feb. 26, two moose were seen attempting to cross S.R. 248. The police indicated the animals presented a traffic hazard. Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 3:15 p.m., a moose was sighted somewhere along Park Avenue. The police were told drivers pulled over to watch the animal, creating traffic problems.

The Police Department this winter has regularly received reports of wildlife, including moose. The heavy snow earlier in the winter brought animals to lower elevations in search for food.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

On Sunday, Feb. 26, someone was suspected to be intoxicated on Park Avenue at 1:34 a.m. Public police logs did not provide details.
