Live pregnant giraffe cam briefly pulled offline for being "sexually explicit"

Live pregnant giraffe cam briefly pulled offline for being

This New York zoo made a decision to live stream April giving birth while daddy giraffe, Oliver stood in the background supporting his partner through the birth.

Millions had been watching the stream for hours until it was removed from YouTube early Thursday morning.

The giraffe had yet to go into labour, so the video wasn't showing anything "graphic by any stretch of the imagination", Patch said.

Millions had been viewing the cam, placed in the stall of "April" the giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, in anticipation of the birth of her fourth calf.

The baby giraffe is expected to weigh around 150 pounds at birth and be about 6-feet tall.

The expectant parents are 15-year-old April and her 5-year-old mate, Oliver.

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




Others are confused about how the giraffe could be flagged for nudity.

"Sexually explicit content like pornography is not allowed".

While the birth will be streamed live, the first time the public will get an up-close glimpse of the baby will be May.

An upstate NY zoo's livestream of a pregnant giraffe abruptly ended after activists complained that the video contained nudity and sexual content.

Since its off-season, visitors cannot come to the park to witness the birth in person, but they can watch it live online.

"We don't negotiate with terrorists", Patch said.
