Man Proposes to Girlfriend with the Help of a 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 a while when Cody decided that it was the 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.

“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 off the stunt. The zoo keepers at the Dickerson Park Zoo laced a lanyard around Mili’s neck, one of the giraffes at the zoo. Mili didn’t have the slightest idea that she was about to play such a huge role in one of the most special moments in Makayla and Cody’s life.

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

“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,” Cody 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. Makayla was bewildered when she saw the ring around the giraffe’s neck, but what really shocked her was when she looked over her shoulder and saw Cody falling on to his knees.

Makayla wasn’t hesitant and immediately said “Yes.”

The zookeepers shared this wonderful experience on their Facebook page.
