A new article about the Path Of The Pronghorn in the Billings Gazette indicates that the fabled Teton herd is suffering losses due to gas drilling on their winter range in the Upper Green River Basin. Marla and I made a trip to Pinedale in December to document the “Mule Deer Crash” of the Pinedale herd. Pronghorn disperse throughout the basin and depend heavily upon windswept slopes to survive the harsh winter. There’s no denying that the decision to drill on critical winter range for both mule deer and pronghorn is heavily impacting both species. Is it worth risking extinction of pronghorn in a National Park?
