Giraffe hilariously interrupts TV live shot at the San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (WKOW) -- A giraffe got a little too close for comfort with one reporter doing a live report in the middle of a zoo.

Reporter Ashley Jacobs in San Diego, California, got quite a licking from the friendly 9-month-old giraffe with quite a wandering head.

She was doing a report in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Tuesday when the animal made his way over to her and began showing his affection.

Her colleagues back in the studio couldn't help but laugh at the situation and joked around with the reporter as she was trying to distract the giraffe.

"She's married," said the male anchor of the network.

The giraffe licked her from head to toe and then licked his lips in front of the camera when he was done.
