Nevada antelope released on Washington reservation

By Rich Landers
Spokane, Washington (AP)

Pronghorns are reasserting themselves as the fastest land mammals in Washington, thanks to a sportsmenís group that joined with the Yakama Nation for an end run around state bureaucracy and environmental red tape.

Volunteers from Safari Club International and tribal members released 99 of the prairie speedsters this month on the Yakama Indian Reservation after trucking them 700 miles from their capture site in Nevada.

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife officials said they are supportive of the reintroduction. However, by not involving the state agency in the pronghorn capture and release, the Yakamas avoided dealing in advance with issues that get sticky for government agencies.
