Wyoming Game and Fish Says Be Aware of Migrating Animals

As the weather changes, many big game animals leave their summer and fall ranges to head for traditional wintering areas.

Spokesman Al Langston says some animals move significant distances while others only move a few miles, but regardless of the distance, migration does occur every year and the migration routes often lead animals into conflict with motorists as they cross numerous highways on the way to their wintering areas.  In addition, big game animals are often drawn to areas along roadways to seek the better forage that has resulted from more moisture due to road runoff and little use from other animals.

Langston says wildlife may be next to roads at any time during the year, and motorists are urged to be on the lookout at all times, but it is the winter that is the most hazardous for both wildlife and motorists. Animals may be on the move at any time of day, but it is nighttime when animals are most active.
