Denver Zoo Keepers Save Baby Tapir With ‘Mouth To Snout’ Resuscitation

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Zoo keepers jumped into action to save the life of a newborn tapir.

Rinny gave birth Sept. 3 but couldn’t get the baby out of the amniotic sack. That’s when staff members separated mother and baby and gave mouth to snout resuscitation to the newborn.

Thanks to their efforts the baby is doing just fine. It’s the first tapir birth at the zoo and the first birth of any animal in Elephant Passage.
