    The nurturing Carr gives her kangaroo is so sweet. Good luck Christine and Irwin! I first learned of Christine and Irwin on the Care2 site where updated information is available. It's impressive the support that Broken Arrow and the community is providing to help Carr keep her disabled kangaroo. Based on the more recent info, it appears the city is only trying to ensure the best care for both Christine and Irwin - it's very commendable. This is a wonderful duo, and Carr is a very special caregiver. I hope they can live wherever they want and keep doing what they are doing. The wildlife rehabilitator, Tucker, seems to also have great insight and good heart, so hopefully the three of them together can make everything work out.

    One question I would raise is how such a severe injury like this could happen from jumping into a fence. I mean, it sounds like poor construction or planning for a wildlife fence unless it was just a freak accident (but the article says "Although Irwin's injury is common among kangaroos..."). Just makes me wonder why kangaroos injuring themselves on fences is common.

    I agree with Jolie2 and Just sayin.

    These dam politicians should just mind their own business and take care of the city like they promised during their elections. Unfortunately, they can't even do that right.

    Christine and Irwin should be left alone and let them live their own lives without any interferrence from elected officials.

    Christine and Irwin, you ROCK.[beam]

    This is a no-brainer. The City Council should allow Christie Carr to keep Irwin with her and continue to reside in Broken Arrow. They both are good-will ambassadors and should be encouraged to continue on with what they are doing, not impeded with roadblocks to living their lives successfully.

    This is a beautiful story. If the city spent one tenth the time worrying about issues that really mattered, like the appearance of the neighborhoods, they wouldn't have time to worry about individual's personal lives like this. Get real and let this woman and her precious little Irwin go on with their lives.
