Pronghorn antelope are the fastest land animals in North America – I have seen them race my truck just for the fun of it. When they come to a fence, they slide under it at high speeds – unless there are four strands of barbed wire or page wire (squares of wire) close to the ground. During the winter, pronghorn antelope migrate to southern pastures to browse on grass and shrublands that are rich in sagebrush. If they cannot slide under the fences, they may starve along the fence, with food in sight.
