... The 300kg herbivorous mammal could be crossing the road to return to the forest reserve before it was run over. "The Wildlife and National Parks Department takes such accidents seriously and urges drivers to be extra careful,” said Terengganu Perhilitan director Yusoff Shariff. Tapir is a protected animal under the Protection of Wildlife Act 1972 and those found guilty of killing one could be sentenced up to three years’ jail and fined RM100,000. Tapir or the scientific name tapirus indicus is an endangered species with only 1,100 to 1,500 estimated left in Malaysia."
Chairman Peter Levine said: "This discovery represents a significant milestone for both President Energy and for the country of Paraguay.  "
"The problem is that Far Cry 2 was done in Africa" he said. "We started to look at different places."
