PRESCOTT, AZ (AP) -

Dozens of pronghorn relocated from northern New Mexico are now roaming southeastern Arizona.

The Arizona and Fish Department released the antelope-like animals on Wednesday near Elgin and Patagonia.

The pronghorn relocation from New Mexico is in exchange for Gould's turkeys from Arizona.

The relocation is intended to rebuild dwindling pronghorn herds in southeastern Arizona.
