— A popular You Tube live stream of a giraffe that is about to give birth at a New York adventure park was restored Thursday morning after being pulled for “nudity and sexual content.” A live shot from Animal Adventure Park was keeping an eye on April the giraffe as she was about to give birth to her fourth calf when You Tube cut the feed. The park official said since the live shot went live Wednesday, there were 20 million to 30 million views waiting for the 15-year-old giraffe to give birth.
“Baby checks out just perfect,” zookeepers said on Facebook on Sunday morning.
The first will last about 10 days and the second will last about five days.
