TERRI IRWIN WAITS FOR CROCODILE HUNTER

Steve Irwin's widow Terri is still waiting for the late 'Crocodile Hunter' to come home and "walk through the door".The 42-year-old widow is struggling to come to terms with the death of the Australian conservationist, who was killed last September aged just 44. She said: "It's extremely difficult. Part of me is still waiting for the day that he walks through the door."Terri also revealed she and her children, Bindi, eight, and three-year-old Bob often watch Steve's old TV shows. She added: "We have so much footage of Steve and we watch it so it's like we almost get to see him every day. The kids and I have good days and bad, but you just deal with it as it comes."Steve was killed when his heart was pierced by a stingray barb while he was filming a documentary off the Great Barrier Reef last year.Terri has refused to blame the sea creature for her husband's attack, and recently urged fans of the naturalist to respect stingrays. She said: "If Steve had come out the other side, I am sure he would have used it as an educational tool."Everybody understands the rules of rays, now. I think people should love rays. They are cute little pancakes in the ocean and their only defence is that incredible barb."

Instead, the last footage fans will see of the 'Crocodile Hunter' will be the final wildlife documentary he recorded 'Ocean's Deadliest'. She said in an interview with US TV show Access Hollywood: "There are standard protocols for examining certain evidence and that's no longer necessary, so we're very proud that Steve's last documentary is going to air and that's his last footage with wildlife."When asked is she had kept the grisly tape, Terri answered: "Oh no, all footage has been destroyed."Steve died aged 44 last September after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray's poisonous barb while he was filming for 'Ocean's Deadliest' off the Great Barrier Reef, in Australia.The documentary will air in the US on January 21.

Speaking to Ellen, Bindi said: "This is Spanky. He's ten. I just love animals. All animals, great or small. My dad really brought it out in me. He's the one that made me. I want to be like my dad. I want him to be proud of me."Bindi - who has a younger brother, two-year-old Robert, affectionately referred to as Bob by Steve - is to follow in her dad's footsteps and staring in a wildlife series for the Discovery Kids network.

STEVE IRWIN'S DEATH VIDEO

Terri Irwin and Steve Irwin

Steve Irwin's widow has been given the video footage of his fatal encounter with a stingray by the Australian state coroner.The 'Crocodile Hunter' died aged 44 last September after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray's poisonous barb while he was filming a documentary off the Great Barrier Reef.It was feared footage of his untimely death would be leaked on the internet so the original copy of the tape has been given to Terri to prevent that from happening. Queensland State Coroner Michael Barnes said on Thursday, "The footage has been the subject of widespread media interest and it was wholly appropriate that we took all possible steps to ensure something of such a personal and tragic nature did not fall into the wrong hands."This is in line with the wishes of the Irwin family."The coroner's office said police had made a small number of copies of the video to assist their inquiry into the cause of Irwin's death, but they were kept under tight security during the investigation and have now been destroyed. Last September, Terri told ABC's Barbara Walters in a US television interview that the video should never be made public.Terri, who has not seen the footage, said: "What purpose would that serve?"Irwin's friend and business partner, John Stainton, has seen the film and agrees there is no reason why it should be aired. He said: "It's just a horrible piece of tape."

BINDI IRWIN SEES PSYCHOLOGIST

Terri Irwin has seen a psychologist to help her and her children come to terms with their father Steve Irwin's untimely death. The Crocodile Hunter's widow is concerned her eight-year-old daughter Bindi has been 'too happy' since her dad died in September. Terri, 42, met with a therapist to ask whether Bindi and her two-year-old brother Bob should receive counselling to deal with the tragedy. She revealed: "I met with a psychologist and that's been a tremendous help for me. I asked him if everything was OK, because Bindi has been so happy. And he said, 'Why? Are you worried? That's what you are shooting for. That's what you want - a well-adjusted child who can handle a tragedy and see that life goes on. "Although Bindi has been coping well, Terri admits Bob has found it harder to adjust to life without his father. She added: "He really has had a much more difficult time and I attribute that to the lack of knowledge about death." Shortly after Steve's death it was reported that Bindi would be following in her dad's footsteps and star in a wildlife TV series. Shooting was due to start towards the end of the year, however, the proposed programs were temporarily shelved by bosses at the Discovery Kids network over fears it would be too soon after Steve had passed away.

SOUTH PARK "STEVE IRWIN WENT SOUTH"

Steve Irwin


'South Park' creators have outraged fans of the late Steve Irwin by poking fun at his death. The latest episode of the satiric sketch, entitled 'Hell On Earth 2006', shows the 'Crocodile Hunter' attending a fancy dress party in Hell - along with the late Princess Diana and Hitler - with a stingray poking out of his bleeding chest. Irwin is then kicked out of the party by the Devil because he isn't in fancy dress. The scenes have sparked outrage among fans and media regulators because they appear to ridicule the wildlife expert's shocking death in September, when a stingray's barb pierced his chest while he was snorkeling near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. British broadcasting watchdog Media watch branded the episode "grossly insensitive". Media watch director, John Beyer, said: "This is bad taste. Steve Irwin's family is still grieving. To lampoon somebody's death like this is unacceptable."'South Park' makers Comedy Central have defended the controversial episode, saying it is no different from their usual work. A spokesman said: "It has offended people in the past and probably will again. Regular watchers would not be shocked."

STEVE IRWIN'S DAUGHTER "BINDI" TO STAR IN WILDLIFE SHOW

Like father, like daughter. Bindi Irwin, the 8-year-old daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, will star in a wildlife series to air on the Discovery Kids network early next year. The shows working title: "Bindi, The Jungle Girl." Her father, animal lover and conservationist Steve Irwin, died from the poisonous jab of a stingray Sept. 4. Besides Bindi, he left behind her mother, Terri, and 2-year-old brother, Bob. The show, now in the early stages of production, was originally "going to be a father-daughter thing," starring the nature-loving duo, Discovery publicist Annie Howell told the Associated Press on Monday. "Steve and Bindi were very enthusiastic about doing the show together." Irwin will appear with Bindi in scenes filmed before his death, his manager, John Stainton, said in an interview on People magazine's Web site. "Some people think that I would be afraid of them, but I'm never ever afraid of an animal," Bindi said in an interview Monday on ABC's "Australian Story." "I just get excited and some that are dangerous I just think, 'Oooh! What's going to happen?' and things like that."

TRIBUTE TO STEVE IRWIN AT AUSTRALIA ZOO

The Irwin Family


We have lost a friend, a champion," actor Russell Crowe said in a recorded tribute. "It will take some time to adjust to that." Prime Minister John Howard, among the 5,000 in attendance at the Australia Zoo for the ceremony, remembered Irwin for his love of Australia. "Steve Irwin touched the hearts of Australians and touched the hearts of millions around the world in a very special way," said Howard. "He did that because he had that quality of being genuine, of being authentic, of being unconditional and having a great zest for life. "Throughout his all-too-short life he demonstrated a love for the two things that ought to matter more to all of us than anything else - his love of his family and his love of his country."

Tributes to Irwin.....

A exuberant television entertainer and conservationist, Irwin, 44, died Sept. 4 when the barb from a stingray pierced his chest while he was filming for a TV show on the Great Barrier Reef. His family held a private funeral service for him on Sept. 9 at Australia Zoo. The ceremony Wednesday featured footage of the hugely popular television program that coaxed laughter from the attendees. As expected, there was one empty seat at Irwin's personal stadium - the one set aside for the late and hugely popular "Crocodile Hunter" himself. On the stage sat Irwin's widow, American-born Terri, and their two children, Bindi, 8, and Bob, 2 - all dressed in Irwin's favored khaki outfit. It was their first public appearance since Irwin's death. "Please do not grieve for Steve, he's at peace now," said Steve's father, Bob Irwin. "Grieve for the animals. They have lost the best friend they ever had, and so have I." Later, Bindi Irwin told the crowd at the ceremony that she had the "best daddy in the world." "I will miss him every day," she said.

WILD STEVE IRWIN KILLED BY STINGRAY

Steve Irwin


Wild and adventurer seeker Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray at Batt reef off the remote coast of northeastern Queensland state. He was shooting a segment for a series called " Ocean's Deadliest". He came on top of a stingray and the stingray's barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart. Crew members aboard the boat, Croc One, called emergency services in the nearest city, Cairns, and administered CPR as they rushed the boat to nearby Low Isle to meet a rescue helicopter. Medical staff pronounced Irwin dead when they arrived a short time later. Stingrays have a serrated, toxin-loaded barb, or spine, on the top of their tail. The barb, which can be up to 10 inches long, flexes if a ray is frightened. Stings usually occur to people when they step on or swim too close to a ray and can be excruciatingly painful but are rarely fatal. He is survived by his wife Terri and daughter Bindi Sue 8 and son Bob 2.
