CASPER, Wyo. — A traveling exhibit from the American Heritage Center called “More Pronghorn Than People” is on display at the Fort Caspar Museum.

“Known colloquially (and incorrectly) as ‘antelope,’ the story of the pronghorn in Wyoming is one of abundance,” Fort Caspar said in a Thursday, July 30 release. “Few travelers in the state will return home without seeing herds of pronghorn along the highways. Until fairly recently, there were more pronghorn in Wyoming than there were human residents.”

The exhibit features black and white photographs of pronghorn along with “information panels that shed light on this unique and-in Wyoming-ubiquitous animal.”
