MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton National Park officials are urging motorists to keep an eye out for animals on the move now that spring has arrived.

Animals are migrating from their winter ranges to summer ranges.

Elk are fanning out from the National Elk Refuge just south of Grand Teton. Those elk are moving along both sides of U.S. Highway 26/89/191.

Bison, mule deer and moose also are moving from winter to summer ranges. Park officials say vehicles have struck and killed two moose just south of Moran Junction in the past two weeks.

Grand Teton officials say drivers can help protect themselves and animals by driving below posted speed limits, especially after dark.
