In April, the giraffe was known for its viral pregnancy (seemingly eternal pregnancy) at the age of 20. She died at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpsville, New York, and she won international attention during her live broadcast of her pregnancy in 2017.
The zoo said in a Facebook post that the giraffe was euthanized on Friday due to increased arthritis.
A statement from the veterinary team stated that her nursing team noticed a change in mobility in April last summer and diagnosed that she had osteoarthritis, “this may have occurred in giraffes of the same age.” The park responded to April’s condition with painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, hoof repairs, newly installed padded floors and diet changes, but her arthritis severity exceeded the team̵
Millions of people around the world watched the pregnancy live broadcast in April 2017, which proved to be a huge money-making event. When she finally gave birth to Tajiri in April 2017, her video stream had 232 million live views. people The report shows that the total live viewing has reached a staggering 7.6 billion minutes.
The zoo said in a Facebook post announcing his death in April: “Since then, April has been one of the most famous animals in the world, which in turn has had a profound impact on the conservation, education and appreciation of giraffes.” Although her hoof prints in the yard will disappear in time, the imprints she left on the hearts of people all over the world will never disappear.”
The body in April was sent to Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine for an autopsy. Then, she will be cremated and return her ashes to the Animal Adventure Park.
Jordan Patch, the owner of the Animal Adventure Park, described April as “a valuable member of our family.”
Paige said in a Facebook post: “In our community, the country and the world, people will feel the loss of animals that love her like her.” “We thank the fans and park supporters in April for this difficult time. The respect and sympathy given because they grieve with us. She will be missed deeply and deeply. April changed the world in her own special way.”
