New York animal park awaits arrival of baby giraffe

It was up, then it was taken down, now it's up again.

"There are a handful of extremist and animal-rights activists that may not agree with that, and that's okay, but have unfortunately reported our YouTube cam as sexually explicit and nude content that has made for its removal", a zoo spokesperson said.

Patch filed a dispute by email.

"This is a flawless example of why we can't have nice things", owner Jordan Patch said in a Facebook live video.

The statement was viewed by almost 900,000 people. Check out the live stream above! In the short time it was off, Patch said he was flooded with hundreds of concerned messages.

"Everything that matters and is important to that giraffe is provided to them in a stress-free manner", he said. "We're proud of the care our animals are getting".

Trump White House rewriting transgender bathroom Laws
President Trump has said that the transgender bathroom issue should be a matter of state decision, not federal intervention. That this is not something that the federal government should be involved in.

Giraffes have a 15-month gestation period, according to Patch. As of 4 p.m. Thursday, however, April the giraffe had yet to give birth.

HollywoodLifers, were you excited to see the baby giraffe be born?

Patch said April, the park's pregnant giraffe, is being visited by the park's veterinarian daily, and sometimes twice daily. He is the only other giraffe at the park.

This little blessing will weigh around 150 pounds and be about 6 feet tall at birth.

OMG! Are you ready for the cutest thing you have ever seen in your entire life? The park is closed at the end of October and doesn't reopen until May 13.

A NY petting zoo is sharing the joy as they are expecting a baby giraffe to be born.
