Cattle drive could cause delay in Grand Teton

MOOSE, Wyo. — A cattle drive could slow down traffic in Grand Teton National Park this weekend.

MOOSE, Wyo. — A cattle drive could slow down traffic in Grand Teton National Park this weekend.

The cattle drive will take place between 6:45 and 8:30 a.m. Saturday between Moran Junc-tion and the Elk Ranch flats a mile to the south.

Park rangers will provide traffic control while wranglers from the Pinto Ranch drive about 250 cattle westward from the ranch.

The animals will cross the Buffalo Fork bridge near Moran Junction. Park officials say drivers can expect a 30-to-40-minute delay while the cattle cross the bridge and a swampy area just to the south.

Grazing privileges were retained in legislation 60 years ago that set aside much of what is now Grand Teton National Park.
