Spring River Zoo New Additions

The elk at Spring River Zoo may not be a full herd yet, but they are definitely a family. The zoo welcomed a new animal addition June 13 with the birth of a baby elk – and it’s a girl! The new arrival, named Alexis, weighed 36.2 pounds and was 30 inches tall at birth. Since then, she has been adding weight and growing taller just as a healthy young elk should. Her parents – mom Patty and dad Garrett – are the two adult elk that came to Spring River Zoo in 2018.
