Goodbye Steve

Steve Irwin, popular Australian wildlife enthusiast and crazy person was killed today.
Death by stingray.
I feel it's worth mentioning that despite him acting like a right dickhead on an international level, he did actually seem like a terrific fellow with no agenda other than the preservation of wildlife on this blue and green planet.
Read about it here.

Sad really - he has two very young children...

Nature has the right to defend itself. The stunt he made dangling a baby in front of a crocodile was crass and despicable...A right sod...I am sorry he died though.

I think the snakes were much more amazing, especially when left alone to go about their own business...

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Only the third person in Australian history to die from a Stingray.

I am sad though- he had great enthusiasm, and a dapper dress sense.

Terrible news to be sure. I saw a CBC report say that death from a stingray only occured 17 times over the last hundred years.

I feel that instead of being buried, Irwin should be thrown to the crocodiles.
