ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Lobo on the Rio Grande Zoo’s new carousel finally has a sponsor.

The pride of University of New Mexico fans was up for grabs for nearly 6 months.

That is until Anchor Built, a general contracting company, paid the $10,000 price tag. The proceeds from the sponsorship will go to the BioPark Society.

Of the 32 animals, there are still nine that have not been sponsored.

The carousel was recently installed at the zoo and features 33 endangered species. It is scheduled to open October 19. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
