Sadly, this is a cycle of life.
In April, the 18-foot-tall giraffe became famous in 2017, when her state zoo began broadcasting the last part of her 16-month pregnancy, and has now passed away at the age of 20.
According to the ABC, the Animal Adventure Park in Harpsville, New York, near Binghamton, announced that due to worsening arthritis, it must be euthanized in April.
The park wrote on Facebook: “We thank and thank the park’s veterinarian and animal care team for their excellent collective care, which kept her happy and healthy in April during the animal adventure trip for more than five years.” Both teams did their best to keep her comfortable and prolong her lifespan, while controlling her own illness. In the past year, people have carried out accommodations and performed various treatments, including replacing the bottom of the yard. The latest veterinary inspection in April confirmed the acceleration of the situation in April, prompting people to determine that euthanasia is humane and appropriate actions. .
She passed away very famously. In February 2017, the Animal Adventure Park attracted millions of YouTube viewers to watch a live video sourced from a camera living in her habitat, which showed footage from the then-pregnant April. Among them, only 1.2 million viewers watched Tajiri, a male calf born in April of that year, which means hope and confidence in Swahili. That was the fourth pregnancy in April.
At that time, the April Giraffe Camera was the second most viewed channel in YouTube history, with more than 232 million views between February 2017 and May 2017.
In 2020, Azizi, the fifth and youngest calf in April, suddenly died in an 18-month-old zoo in Texas. Aziz had been treated for parasitic diseases and showed signs of improvement, but died during a veterinary examination.
After Azizi was born in 2019, Animal Adventure Park announced that it will start birth control in April and will retire from its breeding program.
Now, the April body is undergoing an autopsy one hour west of Ithaca, Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine. The procedure will cremate her and return her ashes to the Animal Adventure Park.
