Video: Antelope Block Road For Rancher In West River


A herd of wild animals slowed the drive home for a rancher in western South Dakota on Tuesday.

Shawn Barber says he was heading home after doing winter cattle chores when he came upon the animals. The antelope were gathered on the the road and took off as he approached. He estimates he followed the herd for close to four miles before they finally moved off the road, under a fence and into a pasture.

Barber says he’s come across smaller groups of antelope on roads before but they usually move into the ditch quickly.  

The video he posted of the encounter has more than 32,000 views in 14 hours.
