Last year around this time, the world was mourning Harambe. This year, the world was captured in February by a much happier story – that of April the giraffe.
The giraffe became pregnant, and her home (the Animal Adventure Park in New York state) decided to live stream the birth. People have been eagerly tuning in since February, when she was expected to deliver the calf, but her due date has since been pushed back, and it looks like today is the day!
*Viewer discretion advised: this is a live stream of a giraffe giving birth. Do not hit play if you do not wish to see that over your morning coffee*
Congratulations to April and beau Oliver (in the next pen over) on the impending birth of their baby!
