Charles Belden photograph of pronghorn antelope boarding a plane
From the rangelands of the famous Pitchfork Ranch southwest of Cody, Wyoming, pilot Bill Monday flies young pronghorn to zoos throughout the country, 1930 – 1939.
Monday is the same pilot who delivered on a high altitude, backcountry rescue, albeit with a little “horse-power,” of course. See that story in Points West Online.
