ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Video shows New Mexico pronghorn antelope moving to their new home in Arizona.

The pronghorn herd was given to Arizona in exchange for 60 rare gould turkeys. The state hopes to boost the rare turkey population in New Mexico.

The antelopes rounded up and released in Arizona were vaccinated and fitted with transmitters to track them.
