Wolves And The Pronghorn Antelope

Lately I have seen several photos of Pronghorn Antelope and revelations that they are the fastest mammals in the USA. Well they are and they can run about 60 mph and that is fast. Only the African Cheetah is faster on the ground and it runs about 65 MPH.

I remember the day they reintroduced wolves into Yellowstone National Park.

I saw one 100 pound plus wolf and he tried to run down an antelope. He had never seen one and the antelope sorely outrun him until he (the wolf) was in a trot with his tounge hanging out as the antelope left him in the dust; staying in front of the wolf…the antelope would have chuckled along with me if he could…The wolf looked confused and deflated.
