Bindi Irwin Gets Emotional Seeing Footage Of Late Father Steve Irwin — Talking About His Children's Future

no title

You'd think Bindi Irwin would have seen all her father's shows and interviews by now.

But Steve Irwin was actually pretty darn prolific, and on Sunday his 19-year-old daughter posted a video she'd only just seen.

In an interview, the late "Crocodile Hunter" is asked what could make him give up his career in wildlife conservation, and his answer is his children.

Not that he ever thought Bindi or Robert Irwin would ask him to but that they would take up the cause he started — something that has in fact come true!

Delta Airlines Will Require Stricter Documentation For Service Animals Due To Rising 'Incidents' — Do YOU Agree With This?

Filed under: PollsAnimal RightsTravel

Starting March 1, traveling service animal owners will have even more to be anxious about.

Delta Airlines announced on Friday that passengers who wish to take their support animal on board will have to submit new documentation 48 hours in advance.

Travelers with an emotional service or support animal will have to show proof of health and vaccinations, as well as a signed document "confirming that their animal can behave to prevent untrained, sometimes aggressive household pets from traveling without a kennel in the cabin," the airline said.

Delta cited several "serious incidents" as the reason behind its decision. Employee reports of incidents involving urination, defecation, growling, barking, and biting have increased 84 percent since 2016.

The airline added that customers have become very liberal with what they consider emotional support animals, and are bringing creatures like comfort turkeys, possums, spiders, and even snakes on board.

Such unregulation, according to Delta, can become a disservice to the customers who have an actual need for these animals. The company explained in a statement:

Trump Administration Reverses Ban On Importing 'Trophies' Of Elephants Killed In Africa — & Claims Doing So Will Help Preserve The Species

no title

Donald Trump is making Africa great again… for rich American hunters.

The president is reversing the Obama administration ban on bringing the heads of elephants killed in two African countries back into the United States.

If that's not infuriating enough, the administration is claiming allowing imports of parts of elephants (called trophies) will actually save the species. Why? Because locals will apparently become more incentivized to conserve the animals.

So, if elephants go extinct, we know to blame the careless people of Africa and NOT those who hunted the elephants down.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said it determined that hunting African elephants in Zimbabwe and Zambia will "enhance the survival of the species," adding in a statement:

Once Again, Beachgoers Take Selfies With Dying Baby Dolphin Instead Of Offering Help

no title

This needs to stop!

On Tuesday, Equinac — a non-profit organization dedicated to saving marine life — shared a shocking post on its Facebook page about the death of a baby dolphin in Mojácar, Spain.

According to the group, the young mammal beached itself on shore most likely because it was ill, or because it was separated from its mother.

Although the nearby tourists were not responsible for the animal's beaching, their ridiculous actions exacerbated the dolphin's death. Onlookers not only kept touching the calf, they took selfies with the sea creature instead of offering help.

The group said (via translation):

"It took us 15 minutes to arrive, but the animal was already dead."

Equinac believes the dolphin was shocked by all the stress and attention surrounding it.

"Animals are very susceptible to stress, and their manipulation, to take pictures and touch them, causes them a very strong shock that accelerates, to a large extent, heart failure, which is what finally happened."

The charity wants to remind everyone how fragile these creatures truly are, and doing anything to harm them is simply illegal.

"Let us remind everyone that these animals are highly protected; to disturb them, to harm them… and to manipulate them is prohibited by law, and we always ask for respect and consideration."

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time this has happened. As we reported, last year, a crowd of beachgoers in Argentina picked up a Franciscana dolphin from the ocean and passed it around for photos. The animal eventually died due to overheating and dehydration.

Shameful!

Siesta Key Cast Speaks Out After Receiving 'Horrific' Death Threats For A Shark-Dragging Incident They Had NOTHING To Do With!

siesta key cast statements amid shark controversy

The Siesta Key cast wants you to know they had NOTHING to do with that awful animal cruelty controversy.

As we previously reported, MTV canceled the local premiere party for their new show, Siesta Key, after star Alex Kompothecras was hit with death threats over his association with a man who dragged a hammerhead shark to its death. We know, that's a lot to process.

Let's start from the beginning. Back in July, a video of boaters cruelly dragging a shark to its death hit the internet and, unsurprisingly, the footage went viral. While the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission did not release the names of those involved in the crime, they did confirm that they've learned the identities of the culprits.

Nonetheless, it was later revealed that one of the alleged animal abusers was Michael Wenzel — who just happens to be a friend of Kompothecras. This connection inspired activists to create a "Boycott Siesta Key MTV" Facebook page, but the protest against the cast got out of hand as Alex and his castmates have since gotten death threats.

Per Alex himself, he was at the Key West airport when Wenzel sent him the footage of the shark's death. The up-and-coming reality star told People:
