Moms live cam
The headaches: Not needing a Wi Fi connection is a plus, but the LIV camera’s transmission range leaves people wanting more.
Phones and mobile devices connected to the monitor cannot be locked or the stream will be lost.
Not only does the LIV camera have a wrap-around strap, it also includes an adjustable arm so moms and dads can switch up the angle.
HARPURSVILLE, NY — An upstate New York zoo, is vowing to live stream a giraffe giving birth despite the removal of an earlier video because of “animal rights extremists.” The Animal Adventure Park, in Harpursville, aired two giraffe cam videos on You Tube overnight into Thursday.
The first, lasting 10 hours, has been removed, and the second two-hour video has stopped, but is still viewable. Follow the process as she and her mate, Oliver, welcome a new baby,” the park had posted.
In a nutshell: The Summer Infant LIV cam is perfect for families that enjoy travel and are constantly moving from one activity to the next.
The device’s compact size makes it easy to transport and set up anywhere, and its sturdy outer shell protects the camera itself from harm.
Shortly after 9 a.m., a third video went live (as seen above). However, park officials say “animal rights extremists” flagged the video as “sexually explicit,” prompting both to be taken down.
“What this has done is pulled an educational tool away from tens of millions of individuals. You have harmed the species’ survival more than you could ever recognize,” a zoo official said on a Facebook live video after the takedown.
“We want the best for these animals and would love to have them in their natural environment someday; but until we can protect their natural habitat and curb poaching, that is not going to happen.” He then asserts that activists should instead donate to local charities that promote conservation.
Despite the controversy, Animal Adventure Park says that once birth is “imminent, when hooves are visible,” it will again put up a live stream — whether it will be on Facebook or You Tube remains unclear.
April is doing “very well” and the labor process is going “just fine,” according to the zoo.
This will be the the 15-year-old moms fourth calf, and a first for her hubby Oliver.
Static noise is not uncommon when the instrument is in use and there is often a delay between the monitor and what moms and dads will see on their smartphone screens.
