Is April the Giraffe pregnant again?

Is the Internet sensation April the Giraffe pregnant again?

She became a star when she was pregnant and gave birth last year. 

If there is a pregnancy right now, it would be pretty early on. But people are already flocking to the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York with high hopes, like Peggy Wright who drove 18 hours from Wisconsin. 

“I hope it’s a girl,” Wright said. 

Jordan Patch, the Animal Adventure Park owner, said they have been keeping a close eye on April. 

"So the keepers here at the park have really been observing Oliver and both April's behavior for quite some time now, and Oliver's advancements have been ignored for a number of months now which lead us to believe we have a pregnancy on hand, but to confirm that we've been collecting stool samples for the past month and they've been shipped off to another zoo's laboratory to confirm whether or not we have a calf,” Patch said.
