Pronghorn Antelope: New Obstacles To An Ancient Migration

Clay Scott

Pronghorn antelope make the second longest migration of any North American land animal. But their ancient migration routes are threatened by livestock fencing.

That's because, for all their speed - they have been clocked at 65 mph - pronghorn won't jump over barbed wire fences, and have difficulty passing under. This episode of Mountain West Voices looks at an innovative solution to the dilemma.

(Broadcast: "Mountain West Voices,"  11/2/15, Monday afternoons, 4:53 p.m., or via podcast.)
