Meet the Expectant Giraffe Behind

HARPURSVILLEBehindGiraffemother

HARPURSVILLE, NY -- An expectant mother has caught the attention of tens of thousands of people who have been watching and waiting for her delivery online.

April the giraffe has set the internet on fire as folks check in on her daily at her home at an animal park in New York.

“We`re probably right around that 15-month mark, so we`re do for a baby anytime,” said Allysa Swilley, the lead giraffe keeper at Animal Adventure Park in New York.

This 15-year-old giraffe named April is not only an expectant mother, she`s become an internet sensation.

When employees at Animal Adventure Park near Binghamton New York, where April lives, determined she was ready to give birth any day, they thought it would be a fun and educational thing to do to stream her live on YouTube 24/7 so people could watch when her baby is born.

“So, we had so many people asking, how`s she doing, how`s she`s doing. well the best way to get to the public is to just put up a live feed and they can watch her progress, watch what she does,” said Swilley.
