So sad. We were all so excited here on the forums when we were waiting for Baby Taj. I will be thinking of Jordan, Allysa, and Corey, who cared for her so lovingly.

I have cried on and off all afternoon.  I still faithfully followed her and the park.  She was the best giraffe ever.  So tolerant and welcoming of people.  Just seemed so happy all the time.  I am so sad.

As often as they bred her, I'm not surprised.  They probably wore her out.  Didn't she recently have a calf?  Again.

Oh I didn't know! I am so sad about that.

What a beautiful loving mother she was.Heart I watched her in labor for probably more hours than I was in labor with my own.

Sweet April
