Biologists to investigate decline of native deer

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A mysterious decline in pronghorn and mule deer along the Wyoming-Colorado border has the attention of a team of biologists who are gathering to investigate the change.

The National Wildlife Federation is putting on public meetings in Steamboat Springs and Craig this week to discuss the decline. Biologists want to find out whether increased oil and gas exploration in the area has anything to do with lower deer numbers.
