Yippee ti yi yo, get along little dogies — but beginning on Thursday in Logan Canyon, it will be the motorists' misfortune, and none of the cows' own.

That, according to Unita-Wasatch-Cache National Forest spokeswoman Kathy Jo Pollock, is when cattle allotment permit-holders will start driving their cattle — 1,400 in all — through portions of the northern Utah canyon from lower grazing parcels to higher-elevation pastures.

The drive period has a encore next Monday, the second of the two days when groups of 200-300 cattle at a time being moved roughly 2.5 miles up the canyon highway from Temple Fork Road to near Twin Creeks.

"Motorists can expect some delays. Drivers should slow down when driving through the steep curves of Logan Canyon," Pollock stressed. "Extra caution should be used in the evening and night to avoid encountering stray cattle."
