Spring Migration In Full Swing

April 16, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, State of Wyoming No Comments
Elk Crossing

They’re on the move.  Wildlife throughout northwestern Wyoming are moving from their winter ranges to their summer ranges now – and Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs cautions that this movement is taking them across busy highways now.  Skaggs says the park is starting to see large herds of  bison gathering on the bench just east of highway 89 on the southern end of the park, and some of those animals are starting to cross over the highway toward the mountains.  At the same time, she says, the elk migrating in great numbers from the National Elk Refuge into the park.  She says moose are also becoming more evident in the marshy areas near Moran Junction.  Skaggs says visitors and residents alike are not infrequently compelled to stop to observe or photograph the wildlife they see.  When they do, she cautions them to pull completely off the road, be watchful of traffic, and keep their distance from the wildlife; especially from  some of the large animals.  Regardless of whether travelers are wishing to see the animals or simply pass through, Skaggs urges caution and watchfulness while on area roads at this time of year.
