Moose in Iron Canyon -Dave Cushing

Seeing Moose in this part of the Wasatch Back is common.  Spotting moose on the trails is one thing but in Park City, they’re often seen wandering up Swede Alley or grazing in the round-about on Deer Valley Drive.  Some of Utah’s wildlife experts are keeping watch on the moose that inhabit the region from Parley’s Canyon to Duchesne.  

  Wildlife officials have captured the bear that had made itself at home in the Aerie subdivision on Wednesday.

A mountain lion found in Summit Park was shot by state Division of Wildlife Resource officers Sunday morning, after it killed one dog and wounded its companion. A DWR spokesman says it's their policy to euthanize a cougar once it has harmed a human or animal. Rick Brough has more.

In just the past couple of weeks, black bears have died in two separate mishaps in the high Uintas of Summit County. Last week, as we’ve reported, a bear that invaded a Scout Camp, attracted by food left out in the open, was shot by a Scout leader.

In another case, in late June, a bear died after reacting badly to a tranquilizer shot, during a DWR tagging operation. Rich Brough has more.
