April the Giraffe
, aged 15, became a celebrity after her pregnancy was livestreamed to millions on ‘giraffe cam’.
And people watched in anticipation as she ate food, napped and mooched around, hoping they would tune in for the moment she gave birth. Almost two months later then expected, she finally gave birth to a male calf yesterday.
Even more people are watching to see the cute Baby
– but they got an added extra when a vet came in to check on them. Clearly protective of her young, April was not impressed.
What she did is what any mother would do when faced with a potential threat, and nutted him. Cameras at the Animal Adventure Park caught the whole thing. The vet is not believed to be injured as he could be seen backing away cautiously, offering a snack as a peace offering.
