Baby tapir given 'mouth-to-snout' by Denver Zoo staff

Zoo staff have stepped in to save a baby tapir by giving it mouth-to-snout resuscitation.

Denver Zoo's female tapir Rinny gave birth last month but was unable to break the amniotic sac, at which point staff stepped in.

The baby tapir has been named Dumadi, which is the Indonesian word for "becoming".
