The Wildlife of Custer State Park
Only second in the world to the cheetah, the Pronghorn can hit speeds of 55 miles per hour. This makes it the fastest land animal in North America! These animals are beautiful and occupy areas all over Custer State Park, but their range is from Canada to Mexico. The Pronghorns closest living relative is the giraffe, and if you look closely at the face there is a family resemblance. On the Wildlife Loop in Custer you may have to look hard some days, but it's almost guaranteed to spot on of these amazing creatures. We're so lucky here in the Black Hills to have a variety of wildlife that can be seen on any given day!
