(ABC) - An amazing animal rescue happened at the Denver Zoo. A struggling newborn Tapir got mouth-to snout resuscitation from zoo staffers.
A female Tapir went into labor and moments later, she's caught on camera giving birth to her baby. Denver Zoo staffers were watching in another room when they noticed something was wrong.
Zoo Staffer Rebecca McCloskey and veterinarian Gwen Jankowski rushed in to help the newborn. They were forced to break open the amniotic sac and perform mouth-to-snout resuscitation. With just a few short breaths, the baby Tapir was able to breathe on his own.
