Antelope worries prompt lawsuit over Wyoming gas field plan

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Environmental groups are suing to contest plans for a potentially huge gas field they say would endanger antelope in Grand Teton National Park.

The Upper Green River Alliance, Western Watersheds Project and Center for Biological Diversity sued the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne on Wednesday.

They say the agency didn’t adequately consider a 170-mile antelope-migration corridor between Grand Teton and the Upper Green River Basin before approving a plan to develop the Normally Pressured Lance gas field in the basin.

Bureau of Land Management officials say they are reviewing the lawsuit but dispute the allegations.
