Roswell zoo visitors help choose names for pair of longhorns_1548114956418.jpg.jpg

The new longhorns at the Spring River Park and Zoo in Roswell have finally been named.

The zoo asked for the public’s help naming the two animals last month. They received 160 name submissions and finally came to a decision. 

Over the weekend, the red longhorn was named “Poncho,” and the black longhorn was given the name “Otis.” 

The people who chose the winning names received a free calendar from the zoo.
