Giraffe LIVE webcam back on Youtube after being taken down

WATCH LIVE Animal Adventure Park Giraffe Expecting Calf at Any Moment

Amid the excitement surrounding a giraffe calf about to be born at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, there are questions from the community about the parents.

April's calf is expected to weigh 150 pounds and stand 6 feet tall. "LET THEM KNOW", Animal Adventure Park wrote on Facebook.

The Animal Adventure Park posted on Facebook that YouTube yanked the stream for "nudity & sexual content" and said "Animal Rights Extremists" were responsible.

The park said stream is educational and taking it down is harming to the species' survival.

Shortly after 9 a.m., a third video went live (as seen above).

Patch said April, the park's pregnant giraffe, is being visited by the park's veterinarian daily, and sometimes twice daily. "We're all on the same team. But until we can control the destruction of natural habitat and curb poaching, that is not going to happen", he continued.

"I encourage the animal rights activists to get behind conservation".

A YouTube feed of a giraffe giving birth was temporarily removed Wednesday evening from the online video service after complaints that the stream contained nudity and sexually explicit material.

The zoo said she's due to deliver her calf "any minute now".

Park officials ask that curious viewers and supporters not contact them Thursday, as the zoo has been inundated with messages.

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

As for April, she's reportedly "fine" and without pain.
