A gaping hole in the earth has opened up in rural Wyoming, due in part to this year’s rainy spring.
“The Crack,” as it is being called, opened up in September and was discovered by local hunting guides who were scouting the area for antelope, USA Today reports. It is hundreds of yards long and at least 100 feet deep in some places.
The fissure is on state-owned land in the middle of a private cattle ranch, and it poses no danger to people or structures.
Experts say similar fissures occur often on smaller scales in the state, and was caused by water running through the hillside and loosening the dirt.
