April the giraffe closer to delivering but baby 'just not coming out'


Otherwise, "she is very much herself". "This is not a bad thing, just adds another piece to our puzzle", the zoo said in its nightly Facebook update.

"Yes, we are awatre of the malicious and irresponsible reporting of an online story.spreading and promoting rumors, suggesting we are lying and defrauding the world", the zoo wrote.

In fact, one of 14-year-old Elli's five calves was stillborn.

The park's live stream was interrupted briefly when YouTube pulled the feed after someone reported the images contained explicit material and nudity.

They noted that the left side appeared to have something sticking out.

While the world continues to wait for April the Giraffe to give birth, a giraffe at the Toledo Zoo beat her to the punch this week.

Jordan Patch recently told WUSA that April's keepers won't really know that the moment has arrived for sure until they see the baby giraffe literally starting to come out.

Poor April the preggers giraffe.

"We can not retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species", the zoo says.

Some indulge in conspiracy theories about whether April is even pregnant at all.

But after the zoo urged commenters to voice their frustrations - and thousands did - YouTube restored the stream within an hour.

The 15-year-old mom giraffe is located at the Animal Adventure Park outside of Binghamton, N.Y. April the giraffe was expected to give birth in mid-February but has extended for more than a month. This has causes some anxious viewers to deduce that the giraffe may have already given birth during one of the occasions when the zoo's live stream cameras went down.

"Please April for my own sanity have this baby soon". This is the zoo's first giraffe calf.

She said focusing on the birth itself could detract from the bigger issue of conservation, with giraffe populations in the world declining by almost 40 percent over the last three decades and all nine subspecies listed as vulnerable. They drink water once every few days; the leaves provide hydration. The zoo says she weight 130 pounds and stands 67 inches tall. The zoo has announced that it will conduct a naming contest after April delivers a baby to involve fans.
