Australian larrikin and Germaine Greer 2

According to the  Herald Sun, Australia’s biggest newspaper, Germaine Greer’s article about the late Steve Irwin did not go down especially well.

 Australian leaders, experienced animal handlers and Irwin’s friends were outraged, saying Greer was looking to boost her flagging literary career. 

Example of what people are saying:  

Greg Parker, of Ballarat Wildlife Park, said his colleague would never deliberately harm an animal.
“That’s harsh . . . he was never cruel to animals, he promoted animal care and animal welfare,” Mr Parker said.”I think his contribution was different to others but he would never jeopardise the welfare of animals.”
Mr Parker said Greer should leave animal welfare issues to the experts.
