Giraffe birth video returns to YouTube

The live video was back on YouTube within an hour, around 8:30 a.m. 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.

"In the Facebook Live video, the zoo official said kicking the live stream offline "literally removed an educational tool" and harmed the species survival more than you have ever recognized".

Blaming unnamed "animal rights extremists" in a Facebook Live video broadcast Thursday morning, Jordan Patch, owner of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, N.Y., said, "This is the flawless example of why we can't have nice things". Users can flag a video if they think it's inappropriate.

April, a 15-year-old giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursvile, New York, is expected to give birth to her little one any time soon, and people can't wait to watch the precious moment.

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

'We are all on the same team.

The Animal Adventure Park in NY has been live streaming the pregnancy.

Patch said giraffes hide signs of active labor to protect their calves from predators. The camera trained on the giraffe showed neither, Patch said.

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

Good news! So far, the zoo says April is doing fine.
