April update: Here's when the giraffe cam will be taken down

HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. -- The end is near.

After weeks of watching April’s every move, the live streaming giraffe camera is about to be taken down.

Officials with the Animal Adventure Park have announced the video will go dark Friday at 4:30 p.m.

"We will all be there to say goodbye," officials said in a Facebook post Thursday.

They said that was the plan all along.

“This decision was made to allow us to focus on the park and our opening,” Animal Adventure Park posted Monday on Facebook.

For those wanting to check in on the as-yet-unnamed baby, plans will be announced next week.

April became a social media sensation as millions of viewers waited to watch her give birth.

That moment arrived Saturday.

April, meanwhile, also suffered a “small twist” on one leg. Animal Adventure Park also addressed the issue on Facebook, saying this type of injury is “not unheard of” in such long-legged animals.



“We appreciate concern, but the bogging down of email servers and other platforms is the exact reason the giraffe cam will need be pulled.”

Better get your last April fix in before the camera disappears.
