Like many around the world, I was shocked and saddened at the news that Steve Irwin passed away this weekend. I suppose I should be glad that he at least died doing what he loved so much, but I still think it was a horrible thing.
Mr Irwin, 44, died after being struck in the chest by the stingray’s barb while he was filming a documentary in Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.
Paramedics from Cairns rushed to the scene but were unable to save him.
The guy was amazing for what he did and he brougght so much knowledge to the world of crocs, snakes, and other dangerous animals. I almost expected a croc attack or to hear that while handling a poisonous snake, he got bit or something, but no…a suprise stingray attack is what did it.
Anyway, I am sad about the loss to the entire world and my thoughts go out to his family.
Farewell, Croc Hunter Steve. You will be missed.
