A baby giraffe is coming!

An upstate NY zoo's livestream of a pregnant giraffe abruptly ended after activists complained that the video contained nudity and sexual content.

Over on the Animal Adventure Park's official Facebook page, they broke the news about their stream being shut down by blaming "extremists" and "activists".

He was not about to let things slide, however.

The Animal Adventure Park, in Harpursville, aired two giraffe-cam videos on YouTube overnight into Thursday.

The post earned a barrage of sympathetic responses especially given the fact that Patch underscored how the entire affair is supposed to be educational. There's a Snapchat element in the Southern Tier that allows you to post something about the giraffe birth. Giraffes are the tallest mammals and males can be up to 18 feet tall and weigh 2,000 pounds.

But obviously, this story isn't about humans: it's about April, and her journey into motherhood.

You will probably ask, what happened to the giraffe now?

New Trump Rally Sounds Like Old Trump Rally
A disabled veteran from Claremont, Florida, 60-year-old Cheryl Hall says she was a Trump campaign worker during the election. He used the platform to complain about the political press and to brag that his administration is a "fine-tuned machine".

The feed shows a giraffe named April who is expecting to give birth to a calf at any moment.

The same might not be true about her mate Oliver, however.

Calves nurse only from their mothers for about 4 months until they can begin eating solid foods (leaves).

According to the North Carolina Zoo, the "horns" are not really horns but bony lumps covered with skin and hair and called ossicones.

Just hours after the video went back on air Thursday morning, more than 36,000 people were tuned in waiting for April to give birth. The video sharing site, however, has tendered an apology and has termed the entire process of pulling down a video or reinstating it as routine.

"It was their way to have the feed eliminated", Patch said in an email. Videos containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted depending on the severity of the act in question.
