Giraffe wipes out spectacularly on release

This is the amusing moment a giraffe wiped out when it was released into its new home in South Africa.

Two of the giant creatures were transported in the back of a special trailer to their new home close the South African border with Botswana on Friday.

However, when game rangers opened the trailer, the first giraffe galloped out, completely missed the ramp and face planted spectacularly into the ground.

Fortunately, the animal got up moments later unharmed.
