Man Proposes to Girlfriend with the Help of Giraffe


Cody Hall may have pulled one of the oddest proposals yet. Why was it odd? You may ask. It was odd because he pulled it off with the help of one of the tallest living creatures on our planet, the Giraffe.

Cody Hall and his girlfriend Makayla Blakey had been going out for some time when Cody decided that it was time to pop the question. Cody wanted to make the proposal a memorable one, so he asked some of his friends from the local zoo to help him out with his proposal.

“Well giraffes are her favorite animal. I consider myself to be romantic at heart and Makayla is so special to me, I really wanted to give her something that she’ll never forget, and something we can tell our future family many years down the road,” Hall explained in an interview.

Hall gathered some of his friends and asked for their help so that he could pull of the stunt. The zoo keepers at the Dickerson Park Zoo laced a lanyard around Mili’s neck. Mili is one of the giraffes at the zoo. Mili had the slightest idea that she was to play a huge role in one of the most special part of Makayla and Cody’s life.

Back at the zoo, Blakey was told that they were going to have a behind-the-scene interactive tour of the zoo.

“Joey [a zookeeper] then told us on our way to the Giraffes that we’re going to watch and help with a training exercise and feeding Mili,” Hall said. “The process began by getting Mili the giraffe into a small enclosure that only exposed the top part of her head and to point at a big tennis ball on a stick with her nose and every time she did it right we would feed her.”

Upon seeing the signal from the zookeeper, hall moved the tennis ball further so that Mili would stretch out her neck even further to expose the ring around her neck. Blakey was surprised to see the ring around the giraffe’s neck but what really shocked her was when she looked over her shoulder and saw Hall falling on to his knees.

Blakey wasn’t hesitant and surely said “Yes”.

The zookeepers shared this wonderful experience on their Facebook page.
