NEW Zoo Welcomes Murphy the Moose!

Posted on 10-21-2021

There’s a new resident at the NEW Zoo!

Meet Murphy the moose, recently arrived from the Alaska Zoo, where he was raised as an orphan this summer. Murphy is currently living behind the scenes while he adjusts to his new caretakers and routine and the very warm local temperatures compared to the Alaskan ones to which he has been accustomed.

Hopefully, he’ll be able to join female moose, Matilda, in the moose habitat soon.

 The folks at the NEW Z00keep will keep us posted on his progress, and in the meantime, you can look for more photos and videos of Murphy on their social media pages soon.
