Two unique residents have joined the Spring River Park and Zoo family in Roswell.
The zoo is welcoming two elks, a bull and cow, were rescued from a local game ranch.
The zoo says New Mexico Game and Fish approached them about bringing them there.
They say the elk are humanized so if they didn’t find them a new home, they would have to euthanize them.
They’re currently in quarantine right now, but the zoo is working on creating a much bigger exhibit for the elk.
Those at the zoo were happy to take them in. They also hope to have them on display in a year.
