  • WATCH LIVE Animal Adventure Park Giraffe Expecting Calf at Any Moment

The Animal Adventure Park, in Harpursville, aired two giraffe-cam videos on YouTube overnight into Thursday.

However, the video was stopped before the big event could take place.

April is expected to deliver her fourth calf soon.

Watch the spokesperson's video below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

The stream was live again by about 9 a.m. YouTube has not released a statement on the matter.

Thousands of people anxiously awaiting the arrival of a baby giraffe are furious after a live stream following the process was removed early Thursday morning.

The group said they staging the rally to protest what they call the "Un-American policies of the current White House". The rally was expected to draw as many as 14,000 people Monday afternoon, according to a Facebook event page .

"What that has done is pulled an educational tool from tens of millions of individuals". Once the baby is born, there will be a contest to name it, though basically nothing could be better than the baby camel named Alexander Camelton.

The Animal Adventure Park posted on Facebook that YouTube yanked the stream for "nudity & sexual content" and said "Animal Rights Extremists" were responsible. So OF COURSE a live stream was set up.

Patch used the Facebook Live to encourage animal rights activists to support conservation.

The park said April is doing very well, in no pain and she's progressing just fine.

Giraffes can be in labor anywhere from two to six hours, and up to a full day; but once the calf begins to show, it should be fully out in under an hour. The zoo pledged to keep people updated on April's status.
