Thousands watch, wait for giraffe birth online

24 February 2017

Once the stream is back up we will continue to bring you coverage of the giraffe birth on fox46charlotte.com and on Facebook.

A NY zookeeper scolded animal rights "extremists" on Thursday after live video of a giraffe birth was temporarily removed from YouTube over complaints of nudity and sexually explicit content.

"Instead of sitting behind a keyboard or holding up protest sign, get behind conservation", said Patch, who held some produce for some reason while delivering his Facebook Live message.

April, a 15-year-old pregnant giraffe, has become a YouTube star with millions of people tuned in to watch her give birth.

"There are a handful of extremist and animal-rights activists that may not agree with that, and that's okay, but have unfortunately reported our YouTube cam as sexually explicit and nude content that has made for its removal", a zoo spokesperson said.

Whether or not Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in education, can be applied to gender has been argued in the courts. Betsy DeVos, pictured, reportedly disagreed with an order surrounding transgender student rights.

OMG! Are you ready for the cutest thing you have ever seen in your entire life?

'Now what that has done is pull an educational tool away from tens and millions of individuals, ' Patch said. Roughly 67,000 people were watching the live feed anyway.

"Upset Youtube has suspended the LIVE FEED for nudity & sexual content?"

The little giraffe will weigh in at about 150 lb. and will stand at about 6' tall, Animal Adventure Park said. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on YouTube.

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