Wildlife week in Park City: dog tangles with porcupine, moose spotted
July 8, 2014
The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of animal reports, including moose sightings.
On Friday, July 4 at 2:14 p.m., a cow moose and a calf were seen on the 500 block of Deer Valley Drive, just east of the Old Town roundabout. That morning, at 9:58 a.m., a moose was seen on the 500 block of Deer Valley Drive.
Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, July 1 at 8:55 a.m., a cow moose and a calf were seen at or close to the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Wyatt Earp Way. The calf was apparently behind a fence. The cow was seen charging at the fence, the police were told.
There has been a series of moose sightings in Park City in recent weeks. State wildlife officials in late June tranquilized a bull moose along Kearns Boulevard and released the animal in moose habitat in the Wasatch Mountains.
