Pronghorn agreement reached

An environmental group says it has reached
an agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to remove some corrals it
says could impede pronghorn migration in western Wyoming.
     The group Western Watersheds sued last year over the corrals in
the Bridger-Teton National Forest east of Kelly in Jackson Hole.
     The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports
ranchers use the corral while they graze cattle on public land in
the Gros Ventre River drainage. The group says the corrals weren't
built in accord with federal rules and could impede antelope
migration between Jackson Hole and the Upper Green River Basin.
     Rancher Amy Robinson says removing the corrals will only be a
temporary inconvenience. She says ranchers will continue to do
business in the Gros Ventre.
