Loose moose shut down I-80 in Parleys Canyon in both directions

Interstate-80 has been shut down in both directions in Parleys Canyon, as state troopers try to catch two loose moose on Sunday afternoon.

“There are two moose loose and as soon as we can and have them tranquilized and transported out of the area the canyon will re-open permanently,” the Utah Highway Patrol announced on its Twitter account around 1:50 p.m. “Please use caution as you approach our emergency vehicles.”

This ambiguity, they said, represented yet another example of the standard’s uneven application.","type":"text"},{"content":"When asked whether this policy applies to non-BYU Latter-day Saints, the church declined to comment.","type":"text"},{"content":"Other interviewees noted practical and safety concerns unique to trying to date as an active, queer Latter-day Saint.","type":"text"},{"content":"Take, for instance, queer BYU students who choose to date, Harrison said. All it takes is one person in the relationship to feel guilty and threaten to out the other.","type":"text"},{"content":"“Even if you’ve minded your p’s and q’s, you are at an extreme political disadvantage because the word of this one person who is now hurt and angry and scared can completely derail your academic, social, religious and economic life,” Harrison said. “And that’s simply not the case for straight kids.”","type":"text"},{"content":"Both on and off campus, Burke said, the fact that many queer Latter-day Saints don’t feel like they can be open about their relationships gives room for predators to flourish.","type":"text"},{"content":"“My first semester at BYU, when I was just starting to come out,” he said, “I felt harassed by an older gay man.” Burke said he was lucky — there was never any physical contact and the man never knew his address or general whereabouts.","type":"text"},{"content":"Nonetheless, he said, it was “terrifying.”","type":"text"},{"content":"“A healthy relationship involves you introducing the other person to your friends and you get their opinion and feedback because they can see things you don’t,” he said. “But the element of secrecy means none of that happens.”","type":"text"},{"content":"Questions for President Nelson","type":"header"},{"type":"image"},{"content":"When asked what, if anything, they would ask President Nelson, those interviewed offered a range from the practical to the theological, as well as the personal to the institutional.","type":"text"},{"content":"Nearly all focused around a hope for greater clarity about their place in the faith.","type":"text"},{"content":"“What do those of us who are transgender or gender fluid, what do we do?” James wanted to know.","type":"text"},{"content":"Bee and others had even broader concerns. “If I could talk to President Nelson,” Bee said, “I would ask him to ask God why he made some people who don’t have the option to be fully happy in life and fulfill all the steps the church lays out for its members.”","type":"text"},{"content":"Craig was even more concise. “Where do I fit in the church, the plan, the great scheme of things?”","type":"text"},{"content":"Others, like Burke, focused on the effects they’ve seen of church leaders’ current stance on LGBTQ issues.","type":"text"},{"content":"“We see the fruits of the policies and the way that we treat queer Latter-day Saints,” Burke said. “Those fruits are suicide, heartbreak, broken homes, broken families and shattered dreams.
