April the Giraffe Update. It’s Getting Weirder, People!
April is a 15-year-old giraffe living and loving at the Animal Adventure Park in New York. She and her 5-year-old boy toy, Oliver, are expecting their first calf any minute now! Actually, her fans have been waiting with her for the past week and a half. In a show of solidarity, very preggers human Erin, donned a giraffe mask and is waiting it out with April.
Here is a live stream from April's pad.
And yes, she has her own website.
The park has released this video to try to calm the rest of the world down. They are being bombarded with well-meaning, but overwhelming messages of support and criticism.
Rest when you can April, we're rooting for you!
