Park City police log cases involving injured deer

by Jay Hamburger, THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week received at least three complaints about deer, including one that had apparently been hit by a vehicle on the S.R. 224 entryway.

On Sunday, June 14 at 9:34 p.m., the police were told a driver struck a deer along S.R. 224. The animal was in one of the northbound travel lanes. The driver who contacted the Police Department indicated there was not much damage to the vehicle, the police said. Another driver might have hit the deer, the police were told. The driver who called did not intend to remain at the scene, according to police logs.

On Friday, June 12, a young deer reportedly fell on rocks on the 5900 block of Royal Street. The animal was making sounds as if it was in pain, the police were told. On Thursday, June 11, meanwhile, an injured deer was seen on the 2200 block of Park Avenue at 8:43 a.m.

Deer are plentiful in the Park City area. The Police Department regularly receives reports about traffic accidents involving deer and deer sightings close to roads.
