Person pounds on pans to shoo away moose in Park City

by Jay Hamburger

The Park City Police Department last week continued to receive reports of moose sightings as the animals have appeared in or close to neighborhoods at lower elevations.
Someone was reportedly seen attempting to get the animals to leave in one of the cases logged last week.

The cases included:

  • on Sunday, Aug. 20, a cow moose and a calf were seen close to the road somewhere along American Saddler Drive. The animals were not aggressive, the police were told.
  • on Tuesday, Aug. 15 at 9:10 p.m., a moose was seen at City Park headed toward Deer Valley Drive. The animal was not in the road and was not a threat, the police said.

    On Sunday, meanwhile, a moose and a calf were seen on Quaking Aspen Court at 4:40 p.m. Someone was reportedly seen trying to move the animals by “pounding on pans non stop,” the police were told. The person was using the pots since 10 a.m., according to Police Department logs. The police classified the case as suspected disturbing the peace.

    The cases involving moose sightings last week followed shortly after a string of reports the previous week, including on Lowell Avenue, Park Avenue and S.R,. 224.
