Colville tribes' risky bid: bring back pronghorn antelope


For some 8,000 years, pronghorn antelope were at home under the open skies and on the sagebrush steppe that today is part of the Colville Indian reservation.

Bones of the continent’s fastest land mammal are found in archaeological sites on the reservation, documenting the animals’ importance to the people here.

But pronghorn have been locally extinct in Washington since the early 1900s, victims of over-hunting, agricultural development and other disturbances after white settlement.
