(Antilocapra americana), not a true antelope. The fastest animal in the Western Hemisphere pronghorns can run several miles at 70 miles per hour. Which makes them difficult prey for any natural predator. They migrate between summer and winter ranges. Their main diet is shrubs such as sagebrush, rabbit-brush, and some grasses. This buck was checking for strays from his harem.

Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
