The problematic portal "Guess The Animal" in request to be removed, locates at the premise of Hong Kong Children's Hospital. The hospital is newly built in the Kai Tak Development Area and has commenced service since 2018, providing paediatric medical diagnosis and treatment for patients under age of 18.
The portal "Guess The Animal" reflects the place name sign of the Hong Kong Children's Hospital, where it allows passersby people and drivers to know the entrance of the Hospital, left to this sign.
This can be proved by Google Maps streetview: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,114.2091742,3a,75y,238.76h,91.3t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sIxPnlu8pW9QyJcB7VzdpQg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
The nominator of this portal is suspected in an attempt to outwit reviewers, by using the cover photo taken during a period where the Hospital is under construction, with the sign and its decorative animal silhouettes completed without the words "Hong Kong Children's Hospital 香港兒童醫院" written yet, and trying to counterfeit that the sign is something ordinary and artistic instead of a hospital property, on the previous OPR platform.
Please also note that the sign is clearly located at the premise of the Hospital's property, where you can see Image IMG_0566 attached, showing the sign is situated within the land lot of Hospital property, where you can see the sign lies parallel to the levelled barrier with trees and bushes running alongside. The yellowish gate further from the camera is the vehicle entrance of the Hospital, where ambulances rush in and out to save lives of dying children.
