April the giraffe cam shuts down Friday afternoon

HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. - April fans, your time with your beloved giraffe is coming to an end.

Animal Adventure Park announced Thursday morning that its camera feed of April and her baby will go dark Friday at 4:30 p.m. Eastern.

The park's Facebook page says its staff will be on scene to say goodbye to its viewers and future plans on how to check on April and her baby will be announced next week.

The park previously said its plan all along was to disable the camera in the week following the baby's arrival in order to prepare for the park season. Opening day is May 13, according to Animal Adventure Park's Facebook.

April gave birth last Saturday.

In the meantime, the park is hosting a contest to name April's baby. Click here to submit a name.
