Bindi Irwin slammed her “pathetic and useless” response to a farm owner who asked her for help in a massive tragedy: “You are so humble and so polite.”
Bindi Irwin has come under fire for her “pathetic” response to a US farm owner’s call for help after she lost 99% of her birds to bird flu.
Taylor Blake, also known as the Eco Sister on Twitter, sent a desperate message to the Irwin clan last week after she thought EMU-loving Emmanuel and TikTok favorite TikTok had contracted the virus.
She offered to take any of their contacts or members of the Australian Zoo Wildlife Hospital to Knuckle Bump Farm in South Florida to help save Emmanuel.
Bindi responded by saying that she wasn’t able to provide much support because the team at her hospital had never treated birds with bird flu, but had sent her “love and prayer” to the farm.

Fans have now flocked to social media to describe Bindi’s response as “pathetic and useless.”
What a pathetic and useless response. Make no effort to help when you are in a supposedly unique position to use your influence and contacts to actually help them. Thoughts and prayers are cheap. Someone said: “You are unimpressive and that is polite.
“Thoughts and prayers are nice, but isn’t there someone you can recommend, given that your family has been in this business for years?” Another agreed.

Taylor shares the story of ailing Emo Emmanuel on social media since the pandemic hit her South Florida farm.
She explained that she had lost every chicken and duck, as well as several geese, turkeys and swans.

Taylor sent a desperate plea to the Irwin clan after she thought Emmanuel had the flu, only to be found negative for the virus later.
She admired the family and asked for advice.
“I’ve been a fan of your family for as long as I can remember and am reaching out to you in complete desperation at the moment,” she wrote on Twitter.
I need help saving my emu, Emmanuel. I’ll pay anyone to move us, if they can help, no questions asked.
Taylor has been sharing her story on social media since the pandemic hit Knuckle Bump Farm in South Florida. Her beloved bird Emmanuel was the last bird to catch the flu, prompting Taylor to send a desperate plea to the Irwin clan.
Bindi replied, “Thank you very much for reaching out to us.”
“Although our wildlife hospital has treated more than 100,000 animals including emus, we have never treated any of this disease,” she added.
“We will need to rely on our fellow animal experts who have more experience dealing with avian influenza.”
Bindi continued: “Our hearts are with you and we appreciate your deep concern and sympathy for my beloved Emmanuel.
We think we all need to love each animal individually.
Hopefully someone with more experience in their area can help. Send love and light your way from our entire family.
