We're Living For April The Giraffe's Birth Live Feed

Staff at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpusville, upstate NY, say that April and her mate Oliver are enjoying the early spring weather and taking the opportunity to stroll around their yard, although the mother-to-be is spending less time eating - except for treats from her vet, Dr Tim.

This will be April's fourth calf and the first for Oliver.

The morning update Wednesday was similar to the one from Tuesday night.

The park posted the following update Monday morning, noting "pushing contractions" that were observed by numerous thousands of people tuning in, waiting for the birth.

"She is big, udders are full, light discharge". April also continues to be a bit out of character. But April stayed inside.

Five players to watch at the US Masters
The 36-year-old had played just 12 tournament rounds in 2017 before missing the cut at the Shell Houston Open last week. But it's still a place where the more knowledge you have, the more experience you have, the more comfortable you'll be.

As of this posting April has yet to give birth - but she has been laboring for days.

So after more than six weeks of waiting and watching, the internet is about to meet its favorite giraffe calf - we think!

Patch said the live stream of April started as a way to keep interested visitors informed about the giraffe during the park's off season.

Unfortunately, the giraffe died a few months later on July 28, after running into the perimeter of its enclosure, and breaking three vertebrae.

The keepers will go in with April occasionally to clean her pen and give her treats (but not Oliver).

Child abuse: Always make the call
The occasion reinforced the importance of individuals and communities working together to keep kids safe and families healthy. Last year, the Hotline received 225,152 reports of alleged child abuse or neglect, compared to 202,493 reports in 2014.

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

"April continues to carry her great demeanor", the zoo wrote. People who've visited the park in previous months knew of April's pregnancy and the park has been receiving inquiries about her giving birth. "Yes, we have been watching her for a very long time", read another recent update.

Animal Adventure says their ultrasound equipment can not tell the sex of the calf. He or she will weigh around 150 pounds and will stand about 6 feet tall.

Once the calf is born and the sex is determined, Animal Adventures will post a contest announcement on their social media platforms where you can submit your name suggestions.
