Gettin Sued at the Zoo

irwin.jpgWe all watched him wrestle the gators and other animals on The Crocodile Hunter and we were all shocked at his untimely death from a stingray in 2006. Now Steve Irwin’s widow, Terri Irvin is getting sued. The wildlife park that she ran with her husband and now runs on her own apparently owes creditors approximately 2.3 million dollars. Celebedge reports,

“The full details of the suit have yet to be released. But documents presented to the court indicate Singapore-based investment bank HQZ Argentum helped set up the trust, which then ran into trouble with the Australian Tax Office. On Wednesday, Judge Maree Kennedy of the County Court in southern Victoria state, where the suit was filed last month, ruled against Terri Irwin’s application that the case be heard in the northern state of Queensland. Australia Zoo, where Terri Irwin lives, is in Queensland.”

While it’s her company that seems to be in over their heads, Terri reportedly owes $56,000 personally. There’s no question that Steve Irwin was extremely popular. Whether you love animals or not, it was always interesting to see what he was going to dig out of their hiding places, or what fish he was going to catch with his bare hands. His show made millions upon millions. So I guess I’m just wondering why his wife owes creditors money.
