After injury, Animal Adventure Park decides to pull April's 'Giraffe Cam'

YouTube channel showing giraffe birth 2nd most live-viewed

After feeding April in an attempt to win her trust around the new male calf, the doctor tried to make his way closer to the newborn to give it a medical assessment.

After months of waiting for April the giraffe to give birth, the only thing left to do now is give that baby a name.

The newest member of Animal Adventure Park was brought, well bounced, into the world on Saturday, with 1.2 million people watching it happen live on the live stream.

Animal Adventure has been in the spotlight for months since launching a live webcam to document and showcase the birth to the world. On Monday night, the staff at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, announced on Facebook that the popular livestream will end later this week. Even dad, who is usually not part of the child rearing process, has shown interest in getting to know the new arrival.

There had been false starts before, but this time, two hoofs were peeking out of April's backside. Yet so numerous same people will jump through hoops to describe a human baby in the womb as anything but an actual "baby".

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said. According to Google, it has rapidly become the second-most live-viewed channel in the history of YouTube, behind only Riot Games' "League of Legends" eSports channel, which launched in 2012.

Filmed 'Fate of the Furious' to break global box office record

"We have a baby!".

He added that April's pregnancy was more than just live entertainment, but a teachable moment and source for education. "Mom is doing phenomenally, and Dad is very interested in the calf which is a positive", said Patch.

It's no secret that Animal Adventure Park has gained quite a bit of publicity following their decision to install a camera outside of April's stall.

The calf has yet to be named.

All of which means that you are definitely not done thinking about baby giraffes. Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so.
