New Mexico Game And Fish Give Arizona Pronghorns In Exchange For Turkeys

Arizona and New Mexico are neighbors and sometimes, the neighborly thing to do is share or trade resources – even if those resources are critters, such as turkeys and pronghorns. Rachel Shockley with New Mexico Game and Fish says her agency recently gave Arizona 43 pronghorn, a species similar to antelope, in exchange for 60 Gould's turkeys. Shockley says New Mexico has about 30-thousand pronghorn, while Arizona's herd has diminished in recent years.
 
Shockley says the pronghorn sent to Arizona were trapped in northern New Mexico, where the pronghorn are most plentiful.
