Live Stream: April The Giraffe ‘Very Active’ As She Prepares To Give Birth

HARPURSVILLE (KDKA/AP) — A pregnant giraffe named April at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, has been starring in her own YouTube livestream as she gets set to deliver her fourth calf.

The feed has attracted over 15 million views so far.

On Saturday, Animal Adventure Park posted that April had a “very active” night and it appeared she had contractions.

“We must remember a 6′ 150 pound baby is performing acrobatic routines inside! Keepers report she has a large appetite this morning, and is enjoying morning treats.”

In an update on Sunday, Animal Adventure Park said April’s appetite is still strong, and keepers observed “many intense baby kicks.”
