    April, the giraffe that became a sensation when a rural New York zoo livestreamed her 2017 pregnancy and delivery, was euthanized Friday because of advancing arthritis, the zoo said. 'She is a precious member of our family, and while we knew this day would eventually come, our hearts are hurting,' Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch said in a statement. The 20-year-old giraffe started showing signs of mobility problems last summer, and veterinary imaging showed she had arthritis in her feet and problems in her left hind leg, the zoo's veterinarians said in a statement.  April the giraffe, who lived at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, has died Park officials said 20-year-old April was euthanized 'due to her worsening arthritis.' They noted that animals as large as giraffes can deteriorate quickly from arthritis. They said they deployed joint supplements, pain medications, anti-inflammatories, padded flooring, diet changes and trimming April's hoofs to try to slow the disease's progression, but her mobility kept declining, and she started spending a lot more time lying down.

    A Texas lawyer has said he is happy to have 'provided a good laugh' after becoming an internet sensation for accidentally leaving a kitten filter on during a Zoom hearing.  'I did not know that Zoom could turn me into a cat, and I did not know that a cat Zoom could turn me into an internet celebrity but it all happened in just a matter of hours,' Ponton told BBC Radio 4's Today program on Wednesday.  'It turns out it provided a good laugh for the country,' he said.  In the now-viral video, Presidio County attorney Rod Ponton hilariously tells the judge 'I'm not a cat' as he frantically tries to remove the animated image during the Tuesday call.  The hilarious video begins with presiding judge Roy Ferguson telling Ponton: 'I believe you have a filter turned on in video settings and you might want to turn it off' The video has been viewed at least 20million times as of Wednesday morning, with the amusing mishap apparently striking a chord with the millions around the world who have had...
    A janitor has become an internet sensation after he was caught on camera making an incredible basketball trick shot as he cleaned the school courts.  Joe Orians, who is the custodian at Liberty-Benton Middle School in Findlay, Ohio, was filmed on CCTV nonchalantly bouncing a ball as he strolled across the empty court. He then stood with his back to the hoop and without taking a glance over his shoulder launched the ball backwards. It hit the target with ease before Orians lifted his arms up in the air to celebrate his victory.    The clip has since been met with a wave of support after it was uploaded to Twitter by School Principal Kyle Leatherman alongside a caption that read: 'Our custodian is better than yours.  'Just casually walking through the gym with no one watching but the security camera. Trick shot, nothing but net.'   The clip, which was recorded in the school's gym on February 4, captured Orians as he was preparing for the school day. The janitor, dressed in all black, walks to half court as he casually bounces the ball...

    There’s a new four-legged internet star — and it’s not a dog or cat. Meet Beave, an orphaned beaver in New York, whose adorable escapades while in wildlife rehab are blowing up the internet. “No one expected it,” owner Nancy Coyne, 46, told The Post about the buck-toothed sensation, who boasts more than 523,000 followers on TikTok. The Orange County-based wildlife rehabilitation expert adopted Beave from a good Samaritan who found the roly-poly rodent by a road at 3 weeks old. She suspected that his parents might have been killed by poachers because adults rarely take baby beavers — known as kits — out of their dwellings when they’re that small. Despite the two years required to rear a beaver, the kindhearted New Yorker ultimately decided to keep him, because the animal sanctuaries were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Coyne’s daughter thought up the idea of documenting Beave’s progress on TikTok — an endeavor her mom initially assumed would be “boring.” Today, the now-9-month-old beaver’s home movies regularly rack up hundreds of thousands of views. The cute clips depict...
