Yellowstone National Park Signs Are Up

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. - As the weather warms up, visitors to Yellowstone National Park will increase.

In an effort to cut back on wild life/car accidents, Yellowstone National Park, in cooperation with WYDOT have placed signs at the north, east, and west entrances.

The signs tell drivers to slow down because big horn sheep, moose, and elk don't do well when you hit them with a car; you might not come out of the accident intact either.

Cody Beers, WYDOT Spokesman, says the signs are in place to keep people aware and make the roads in and out of Yellowstone National Park safer.
