HARPURSVILLE, New York — If you ask people on Twitter, they’ll tell you April the giraffe is getting “really close” to giving birth.
What do a bunch of random people from around the world know? Who knows, but millions of people have invested millions of hours watching April for the past several weeks.
She became an internet sensation when the Animal Adventure Park provided a live stream of the giraffe ahead of her giving birth to her fourth calf.
People on Twitter are never at a loss for jokes, sympathy, or observations about April.
