"The arlelope found in the southwestern Prairie region of Canada have had to adapt to different foods and a harsher climate than those living farther south. "The Prairie region represents thc northern-most area inhabited by antelope and very few studies have even been done on said Joe Hnatiuk, fish and wildlife ecologist for the Saskatchewan department of natrual resources.

"Its primary surce of food is a particular sage found only ES far north as Montana. The antelope in Canada have adapted to eating other foods."
