The suburban squeeze

Document Actions

I find the perilous journey across Wyoming's energy fields to be far less harmful to the well-being of pronghorns than the rampant development along Colorado's Front Range and elimination of their habitat entirely (HCN, 12/12/11 & 1/9/12, "Perilous Passages"). Try finding a pronghorn anywhere south and west of Greeley, in a huge range that they used to call home.
