PARK CITY, Utah. — Monday morning, 7:10, Quinn’s Jct, a lone, young moose scrambled around stationary and moving traffic.
On the surface street of State Route 248 the moose, sans mom, searched frantically for a safety corridor away from the hustle and bustle of Park City rush-hour.
Concerned citizens found themselves ready, willing, and able to assist however the ordeal was over as quickly as it began.
They watched the moose trot up onto the freeway where an oncoming semi-truck gave a long and loud honk successfully startling the large animal. The moose, by then at a working trot, thankfully reversed course and made its way back down the on-ramp.
It scampered away allowing witnesses to continue about their morning with at least the tacit knowledge that a crisis was averted.
Here are some tips on how to interact with a moose from Wild Aware.
