Steve Irwin's Dad: Croc You, Terri

3/1/2008 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bob Irwin, father of Crocodile Hunter Steve, has quit working at the Australian Zoo after dedicating 36 years of his life to its cause -- and it looks like Steve's widow, Terri, is to blame! Crikey!
Bob Irwin
In a letter sent to the Sunday Herald Sun yesterday regarding his abrupt departure, Bob thanks zoo staff, Animal Hospital workers, Wildlife Warriors and "all of Steve's friends out there" -- but no mention of Terri, who has growing control of Steve's empire, and is the mother of his grandchildren Bindi and Bob.

Previous to Bob's departure, there have been rumors circulating of a rift in the Irwin family -- including disagreements on treatment of staff and the commercial direction of the Australian Zoo.

Steves dad started this zoo when steve was a kid...not terri when she was a kid...so steves dad should have some control over this zoo not terri..steves dad should take this to court and get it settled once and for all!

Terri is a disapointment to the United States, and to Oregon. She needs to apologize to Bob, step back and invite him back. No more "Disney" Zoo...just leave it the way Steve left it. Your ex friend. Michele.

WHAT?    

YOU ARE JUST PLAIN MEAN #136. YOU must really hate animals. ANY animal lovers out there that watched STEVE know that he ( and Terri ) were there for the animals. #138 and #139 you rock.

WHAT?    

Um, Steve DID not harrass the animals. He was out there educating us , the public about various animals and their needs, habitats, etc. Educating us on the plight of many animals that are almost extinct because of the greediness and stupidity of some people. Alot of wealthy people make me sick, too. But the Irwins don't deserve to be in that category. If you pay attention to the show, you will see what Steve and Terri are all about ( the father, Bob too) they are about endangered species, relocating, ( instead of killing) animals, education, and awareness etc. They ARE GOOD PEOPLE!!

Steve Irwin wasn't half as annoying as his wife and Bindi.

Standards are badly needed.    

Everything about this is all wrong. Terri needs to reexamine her priorities.
