Antelope Cause Traffic Jam on Memorial Day Weekend

An unusual traffic jam occurred on May 29 in Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, as antelope were filmed blocking the road and forcing drivers to a halt.

Philip Fleet was crossing Lamar Valley when the pronghorns decided to settle on the road for a few minutes.

“Lamar Valley pronghorn antelope have had enough of bison and bears getting all the animal jam credit,” Fleet joked. Credit: Philip Fleet via Storyful
