Another Tapir knocked down; injuries received but Tapir alive

Posted: Monday, December 27, 2021. 9:30 am CST.

By Hugh O’Brien: Another Tapir, Belize’s national animal, was knocked down in the Belize district, this time on the Boom-Hattieville road.

The incident happened between 9 and 10 pm on Sunday night in the vicinity of the solid waste transfer station located on the said road. A vehicle traveling in the area collided into the Tapir injuring the animal and leaving shattered glasses and scraps from the vehicle at the location of the accident.

The injured Tapir was seen lying down on the side of the road, but after a while the animal was able to get up despite limping badly on its right front leg.

Recently there have been a number of accidents involving Tapir in this part of the Belize district, particularly along the John Smith airport link road and the  Boom-Hattieville road.

Earlier this year, the Belize Tapir Project pleaded with motorists to be aware of wildlife crossings and to drive with caution after the 5th Tapir was found dead on the John Smith road since November 2020. The John Smith airport link road is east of, and not foo far away from the Boom-Hattievielle road and runs in the same general direction.
