ALAMOGORDO – The Alameda Park Zoo is throwing some thanks around as its residents Tiny and Winnie the black bears, and Rocky the mountain lion spend some time to the east at the Spring River Zoo in Roswell.

Alameda Park Zoo recently recognized New Mexico Game and Fish and the Spring River Zoo for their help relocating and taking in the animals while their habitats in Alamogordo undergo repairs.

bright spot“The zoo staff would like to thank the New Mexico Game and Fish Department for assisting with a successful transport, and the Spring River Zoo for their hospitality and care of our animals until this project is complete,” Alameda Park Zoo Manager Kate Unterweger said in a news release sent out by the city.

“We hope that visitors to the Spring River Zoo enjoy our bears and mountain lion while they are on exhibit, and look forward to bringing our friends back to the Alameda Park Zoo very soon,” she added.

Tiny, Winnie and Rocky have been at Alameda Park Zoo for about a decade, according to the release.

Tiny and Winnie, and other Alameda Park Zoo animals came to the zoo as they were not safe in the wild.
