MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) — Motorists in and around Grand Teton National Park are being asked to be cautious over the next few weeks as wildlife migrate from wintering areas toward summer ranges.

Park officials say that with the receding snowpack, elk on the National Elk Refuge have begun to fan out across the sagebrush flats north of the Gros Ventre River. Various other groups of elk can be found scattered across the area.

In addition, several moose are roaming the sage flats between the Gros Ventre Junction and Moose Junction. And bison and mule deer will soon be migrating to their summer ranges.

People driving on Highway 89 and the Antelope Flats/Kelly scenic loop roads are being asked to be especially cautious because animals sometimes bunch up along the roadways before crossing.
