Live video feed that showed giraffe birth to be taken down

Posted April 24, 2017

Animal Adventure Park has confirmed the life giraffe cam will go dark on Friday, April 21 at 4:30 pm EST.

For those watching the live cam, it went out with a whimper.

But with April finally giving birth last Saturday, we knew it would end soon.

We are going to be down for a little bit of time.

April and her calf will spend about six to 10 months together.

Inside Edition flew Dietrich and her new baby, Porter, to NY where the park's owner, Jordan Patch, introduced her to April.

Park owner Jordan Patch, veterinarian Dr. Tim, Corey and zookeeper Alyssa will assemble in April's pen to say goodbye on the camera to the millions of viewers who have watched the feed non-stop. "We will all be there to say goodbye", the wildlife park wrote in the post.

A contest is underway to name the calf, with votes costing $1 each.

The zoo said earlier this week the number of emails the Animal Adventure Park received from viewers were causing its servers to be bogged down, and interfere with operations.

In all, Animal Adventure Park scored when it came to YouTube views. Animal Adventure Park also addressed the issue on Facebook, saying this type of injury is "not unheard of" in such long-legged animals. Animal Adventure Park has turned off the live streaming 'giraffe-cam, ' ending a 70-day run as a top internet sensation. It comes second after League of Legends eSports channel.
