Steve "The Croc Hunter" Irwin killed by stingray

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,20349888-2,00.html

I certainly feel for his friends and family, it's quite apparent he was very close to them.

RIP Steve

Man, i heard..
I watched quite a few doc's by him and his wife,
sometimes with tense muscles, as he took risks
with deadly snakes or huge crocs, i guess he
miscalculated the instincts of a sea animal..?
feel very sorry for his wife and kids..

Well he and his family probably knew about the great risks he always took.. Nevertheless pretty bad.

He did take tons of foolish chances, but 44 is too young for any human.

He died doing what he loved.

And he never hurt any creature...

People are quick to criticise him without realise exactly what he has done.

The guy was never going to die of old age, but I didn't expect him to die so early. After working with who-knows-how-many crocodiles, all more than capable of snapping him in half, he was killed b a stingray. RIP Steve.

i thought this kind of thing would have eventually come to him. i always thought he would die from a snakebite or something. but a stringray barb in the heart? i rarely ever see him exploring the ocean. maybe he just didn't know enough. i'm not sure..but it's a great loss.

but, yes, atleast he did die doing what he loved. and that's good. can't say i ever thought we die from old age or cancer or anything like that.

There was a thread about this on the Drummerworld forums, so sad news. Steve was a true superhero and did so much for the animals and nature...

R.I.P. Steve Irwin.
