Drama At The Zoo!

| Filed under: Australiastic

77920177.jpg

The Crocodile Hunter's father, Bob Irwin, has resigned from the zoo he helped to build over 36 years ago!

Why'd he quit????

There's been major dramz with Steve Irwin's widow, Terri!

Rumours of an Irwin family feud have been circulating since January and volunteers and a disgruntled employee have recently claimed staff were upset that Poppa Bob had been banned from the Australia Zoo after an argument with Terri.

The elder Irwin was reportedly upset with Terri Irwin over treatment of staff, management of Wildlife Warriors and the commercial direction of the world-famous attraction.

Bob has vowed to keep his son's dream alive at a new property he has bought near Kingaroy, northwest of Brisbane.

In his resignation letter, Poppa Irwin thanks zoo staff, Animal Hospital workers, Wildlife Warriors and "all Steve's friends out there", but makes no reference to Terri or her contribution to his son's conservation empire or to the raising of his grandchildren, Bindi and Bob.

Terri Irwin has refused to comment on Bob's departure.

Sucks they couldn't all get along!

    Mario

    You dirty little fucking hypocrite. Using your supposed power and influence just to satisfy your sexual desires sounds like the sort of juicy gossip that has become your bread and butter. Why no 'Personally Perez' on this? Embarrassed that you got caught out? Need time to engage a PR firm to handle this little inconvenience? Come on Mario, let's hear your side of the story.

    ALL POWER CORRUPTS

    And that has exposed you as the biggest hypocrite of all. You could have helped the guy out and he probably would have blown you out of gratitude, but no - you used him and pissed him off. Can you really blame him for retaliating?

    I knew something like this would happen after STeves death!! Terry has been parading Bindy around like a circus animal and it is shameful. Keep the little girl in Australia and send her to school like a normal child!! She can be a movie star when she grows up if she want to,

  19. vetgirl says – reply to this

    I never did like her. And she does seem to parade those kids around and make money off of them, so sad.

    Terri needs to check herself. Power Mad? This is Steve's father.
    Everything about this is all wrong, from banning him to the treatment of staff,
    to his premature resignation. She will either smarten up, or be alone.

  23. vetusvates says – reply to this


    23

    I knew sooner or later her inner BITCH would come out. And I KNEW it would be over the MONEY. She has been shamelessly pimping out little Bindi, since the day Steve died. I suspect she has a similar future in store for the little boy, Bob. Now, what Steve began has become no more than a money-making-machine to her. God Bless, the elder Bob Irwin, Steve's dad—likely it will be up to HIM to uphold Steve's memory in/with some sense of DIGNITY.

  24. Sadie says – reply to this

    Bob Irwin is the one that founded that zoo. Terri Irwin should be ashamed of herself the way she's been whoring her daughter out since Steve died. I loved Steve but I never did like her.

    Re: ALL POWER CORRUPTS – Number 18, the correct quote is "Absolute power corrupts absolutely". Which does not apply in Perez's case. By the way, do you know what STFU means. It means shut the fuck up. So pipe down. Oh yeah, and Perez, we love you, Babe. Keep on keepin' on. You're the greatest.

    If this is true about Terri then that's fucked up. She seems to be pimping out her daughter big time. That poor kid hasn't had a moment to grieve…since the speech she gave at her father's funeral…she's been performing.

    Terri you dumb bitch. You are doing a huge disservice to Steve by disrespecting his father. WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TERRI????

    Putting that nasty kid out in the limelight! Seriously what "talent" do they have? A genetic predisposition for getting maimed? They should just admit that it was a good ride (before their dim daddy got a tail shot through his fucking heart) and spend the rest of their days blowing the cash that he earned (being a complete fucking tool)… Either that, or we just wait for another one of them to bite the dust.

    40

    So sorry to read this shit. You know that family is going through some serious pain. I'm not sure how I feel about Bindi being allowed to be so famous and out in the public eye so quickly. Doesn't matter anyway, Terri's the one there with her every day. She's her mother, and seems to really adore her children, so I'm sure everything will be fine. Steve is watching over all of them, including his daddy.

    My heart goes out to all of them, I just can't be snarky about something like this. Hope they work it out.

    41

    What a FUCKING family… I hope they ALL DIE… they FUCK with animals, and KARMA is what they get… ALL OF THEM… the husband fucks with sting-rays, he's dead… GOOD. The mother decides about a day of fake "GRIEVING" is enough, and she parades that daughter ALL OF THE WORLD, on T.V…. what an AWFUL WOMAN… out for money… And she and the daughter fuck with animals, and they should die too. AWFUL family.

  42. CRICKEY says – reply to this


    42

    King of Mean is right. That mother should be sterilized and put in jail. That "zoo" should be closed. Bindi should be sold into white slavery.

    I TOTALLY BELIEVE SHE`S A BITCH…JUST LOOK AT THE WAY SHE TALKS, SHE ALWAYS COMES ACROSS AS TOTALLY FULL OF SHIT, LIKE THIS ANAL RETENTIVE WACKO WHOSE READY TO EXPLODE AT THE SLIGHTEST PROBLEM. THEN FIGURE HOW RIGHT AFTER STEVE DIED SHE HAD NO PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY EXPLOITING HER KID.

    Ever since Steve died, the whole family seems so joyful !
    Freaky family.
    Bindi is so overly happy that it's sickening.
    You would never know her Dad died , the way she acts.

    Not surprised! Terri is such a witch. See how she pimps her own daughter, it's sickening.

  47. mia says – reply to this


    47

    Posting this in 2 parts. Apparently there is a "limit" on posts.
    First of all, Steve would take these two out back (pun intended) and knock their heads together. Then he would stand by his father. That said, if you were paying attention at all, Steve helped develop and supported all of the commercial ventures that Terri is managing. He was the one who created Bindi's show, and would have starred in it with her. He was the one who created Wildlife Warriors, in order to fund his land acquisitions to perpetuate natural habitat in Australia. In a late interview, Steve enthusiastically discussed plans to open a Las Vegas attraction to expand his business to America. These are only a few of the projects that Terri has inheirited responsibility to promote. I'm sure that Steve and she had a complete understanding of how he wanted Bindi raised, and how his legacy should be managed. You guys crapping on Terri are ignorant and heartless. She is a great mom, and represents Steve like a beacon. I am not surprised that only a short time after Steve's death that there is some post traumatic emotional meltdown going on. Terri and Bob Irwin are grieving in very different ways, and I imagine as a man, Bob sometimes wishes he had more control.

  48. mia says – reply to this


    48

    Part 2:
    Concerning Bindi, I expect that if Terri sees her development endangered by her activities, particularly during her teen years, that she will discontinue any projects that prevent her from having normal social interaction. So I wish them the best as always, and hope that the nasty comments don't cause anyone more pain. These folks deserve respect.

    Re: ed – She's in charge cause SHE'S A FUCKING BITCH!! She has an American twat, whose sole interest is fucking up the daughter, making her a star. It makes Britney Spears' family seem rational and sane.

    Re: mia – You are an incredible idiot… Terri is raising that child to be a MONEY MAKER. What is "normal" about a child being paraded around the world on t.v.? She should be in a regular school. She is destined to be a drug addict. I hope she kills herself before she's 13. Terri doesn't deserve any respect. She is a horrible cunty mother, who hates her child. She treats Bindi like a prostitute, pimping her out to make money. They don't give a shit about animals… they wrestle them… do sting-rays like to be wrestled? KARMA, baby… I hope they ALL DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Animals on this planet are safer now that STEVE IRWIN is dead. I hope Terri commits suicide and Bindi too… BAD role models… makes all of AUSTRALIA seem like a bunch of barbarians that wrestle animals. What jerks… KARMA…

    #53 You illustrate my point about vicious comments being made by ignorant people. I would bet you don't have the stones to say any of those horrible things to Terri's face.

  55. ABO Child says – reply to this


    55

    and don't say anything about how Bindi looks. She genes from her mixed race (1/4) father are quite prominent in her. (her colour, her nose, and her eyes)-Gotta love the mixes!

  56. shugnite says – reply to this


    56

    Has Bindi ever shed one tear or grieved over her father? Did she actually hate him or something? This whole situation is completely creepy and disturbing. She's an annoying little girl too. Totally the type of girl that would be hated by all the other kids @ school–if she actually went.

  57. Michael says – reply to this


    57

    I wouldn't blame Terry for being such a money hungry, empire building bitch. After all, she can't change the fact that she's AMERICAN! The shit that's going on at Australia Zoo is a nice analogy to what's very typical in your FUCKED UP country!

    58

    I always thought steves wife was a wanna-be
    and this sounds a terrible thing to say but she enjoyed the media attention, in the aftermath of his dealth and so in a bizzare way did the daughter
    she should have been sad if she was really that sad
    and her intervievs was always weird!!!!
    and the chucky midget daughter is just horrid…..
    and she is always dragged out to get the sympathy vote and is one notch away from back flipps

  59. Posey says – reply to this


    59

    Re: ed – I was wondering the same thing. If someone needs to step down shouldn't it be Terri? Still the whole thing is sad. Dad started the whole thing and Steve worked hard the help him make it even bigger. Hope dad does well with his new endeavor.

  60. C says – reply to this


    60

    That little girl does not have a normal life and will grow up to be seriously psychologically damaged. Bindi's appearances on various talk shows clearly indicate that something is not right; i.e. behavior etc. I think that child is being pushed beyond her limit.

    Terri is using her daughter as a tool to maintain the lifestyle she was accustomed to when Steve was alive.

    If Terri was living in the United States, the Department of Children and Family Services would be investigating her for child abuse.

    Eventually, it will boil down to all fingers being pointed at the mother. It is only a matter of time before the headlines will read "Terri Irwin Unfit Mother"

    62

    If this is true it is really sad. I understood that the dad and mom had passed ownership of the zoo to their son years ago. Then the mom died in a tragic car crash…then Steve died. I thought he had done a lot of planning as he knew he was in a dangerous field of work, and the zoo and wild life conservation work would go on smoothly.

    I would hope for the good of the 2 darling children that the Grandpa could be supportive and non-judgemental…Terri has a huge job ahead of her and could use the help and family support I am sure. She always spoke so warmly of Steves parents and sisters, and Wes.

    I hope they can get it together!

    63

    The father buys the property years ago, has a great life with his son, gives it to his son, now the bitch wife won't let him there?
    .
    Now she's a millionare, thanks to Grandpa.
    .
    Go poke a crock in the face with a stick, like your husband did, bring Mindy.
    What a bitch.

  64. Lysette says – reply to this


    64

    The father's resignation looks very poorly on Terri. She obviously is a cluelss bitch. A family rift is the last thing that Steve Irwin would want and it doesn't honor his memory. Not to mention the disrespect she is showing her own children. She is shameful.

    66

    This is really sad. Bob is such a great guy and he and Steve were so very close, especially since Steve's mom died. Steve often talked about their close realtionship. Terri needs tobe Pimp slapped and reminded that none of this is about her or the kids. This was something he and his father built together as a family. Yes, he wanted his kids to follow in his footsteps…but without him here to teach them, Bob is the next best…now he's gone. They are all screwed now and it's all her fault. SO SAD!

    67

    Re: mia – Honey, I GUARANTEE you I would have the "stones" to say ANYTHING in front of a horrible person like Terri: RIGHT TO HER PIMPY FACE. If I could get her away from pimping her daughter long enough to tell her, I would tell her EXACTLY what everyone thinks of her. I would start off by saying it's OK if she wants to raise her little daughter as a whore, she's doing a good job of that… then I would ask her if she wrestled any sting-rays lately, or if the family has given up on that. Yes, I would have the courage to tell her TO HER FACE… if Terri has the "stones" to whore out herself and her daughter, I would have the courage to ask her about sting-ray wrestling. I hope Australians are on to her fake personality. Hopefully, the daughter will kill herself, or maybe a nice HEROIN overdose… the world's surviving animals will be SAFER. It's Karma that's getting back at her for being mean to animals.

    Re: stevo – Nitwit, why should I give my phone number… how does that confront Terri, the bad mother who whores out her baby, cause she doesn't think she's famous enough? The issue isn't if I should publish my phone number or not. The issue is: Is this family of ANIMAL WRESTLERS fir to be on the planet? Personally, I would sterilize ALL of them at once, including little Bindi, who is already brain-washed. Her bad mother didn't allow her to grieve for her father who thinks it's a great idea to wrestle STING-RAYS. What a nitwit. He got what he deserved. The only sad thing is that the bad wife TERRI will now be getting even MORE money, MORE famous, but the stupid people can't see that. What kind of mother is this? That child should be taken away from her at once. LEAVE ANIMALS ALONE. They don't fuck with you, don't fuck with them. GOD BLESS the sting-rays that DEFEND themselves from OCEAN WRESTLERS. I'm so glad Steve is dead, and now maybe others will learn NOT to fuck with animals. And thank you to my supporters.

    84

    Terri is a media whore parasite who attached herself to Steve. Hope Bindi's earnings are going into a trust fund because Terri is pimping her out. With no personality of her own, Terri horns her way into the spotlight. She is doing Steve's memory a disservice. Good on Bob for calling a spade a spade!

  85. Terri is a says – reply to this


    85

    Terri is a straight up beyotch! I guess now that Steve is dead she has to live off Benji, Bingo, Bindi or whatever that child's name is. Steve named his son after his father so I'm sure they were pretty close. Terri is going to end up in the nut house and the kids are going to end up in rehab, sorry to say.

    Wonder what Steve would think of the current situation. The pimping of Bindi is on overload, and Terri riding the creepy gravy train. Best of luck to Bob

  88. Terri is crazy says – reply to this


    88

    I don't mean to talk about children, but have you ever seen Bindi give an interview? She is one CREEPY kid. And her mother just sits there and stares at her like she's re-living her life with her dead husband through her daughter. She wants Bindi to be just like him. I hope the girl really wants to be doing all this animal stuff. It always looks so scripted to me.

    Re: ed – Bob senior quit the zoo years ago and when I saw them at the launch of a marble statue of Steve ,Bindi and Bob they were all happy and also Bob senior hasnt lived at the zoo for years. Since Steve pasted away Bob has been helping out. There is a team in place to run the Zoo Including Steve's Brother in law, his Sister and Wes not to mention the many more that are there. My family & I met Terri ,Bindi and Bob when Terri was very sick (and she was still meeting her commitments) We spoke to Bindi and she was very polite and just so down to earth and lovely and Bob is so gorgeous.
