Crikey, Bindi Gets Bronzed!

11/15/2007 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jungle Girl Bindi Irwin cheerily posed for a pic with a bronze sculpture depicting her late father, Croc Hunter Steve Irwin, as the rest of his family takes up the work of wrestling crocodiles and presenting wildlife for education and amusement.

A statue of the Irwin family -- including little Bobby, widow Terri and their deceased dog, Sui, -- was unveiled today at the Australia Zoo by the surviving Irwin family and Steve's father, also named Bob. November 15 was named "Steve Irwin Day" at the zoo. Crocs rule!

Bindi also took the opportunity to unveil her wild crimped hairdo.

A very nice tribute to a wonderful man and his family.

However, can we have a little less "wrestling" of wildlife in the futuere and keep the emphasis on education and preservation of wildlife through the education and awareness these good people can bring to the world. No more hog tieing, wrestling, creeping up on, double daring these creatures, OK? Someone got killed because of it.

I wish this lame gator-wrestling circus act would just fold it's tents. Harassing animals and making millions of dollars while claiming to be conservationists is the ultimate in hypocrisy. This tired old ruse jumped the shark years ago. Watching these buffoons continue to work this crocodile wrestling gimmick is pathetic to say the least. Just fade away gracefully.

#2 you said what was on my mind precisely. What is wrong with a TV audience that thinks some a--hole "wrestling" animals has anything to do with preservation or protecting animals. He was simply a showoff who found a way to make money from his silly and cowardly activities. Animals should be left alone, hopefully to live in an unspoiled-by-humans habitat. A real conservationist would be working toward that end, not tormenting helpless animals. The Irwin family should go away.
