Giraffe arrives at zoo with crick in the neck

275x250.jpgBeing transported to a new zoo looks like it was a right pain in the neck for this five-year-old giraffe.

It's understood the 11ft female giraffe suffered the injury as she was being moved from The Wilds park in Ohio to Tulsa Zoo in Arizona.

When Amali arrived at her new home in Oklahoma, keepers instantly noticed her normally long, slender neck had an odd crick in it.

Though she is not thought to be in any pain, vets say she will be kept in medical quarantine until X-rays are done next week to see if her neck is broken. Staff say they hope the crick will correct itself naturally but fear it could stay like that forever.
