Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed

didnt know where else to post this

Quote:
BRISBANE, Australia - Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and environmentalist known as the "Crocodile Hunter," was killed Monday by a stingray during a diving expedition, Australian media said. He was 44.
ADVERTISEMENT

Irwin was filming an underwater documentary on the Great Barrier Reef in northeastern Queensland state when the accident occurred, Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported on its Web site.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. said Irwin was diving near Low Isles Reef near the resort town of Port Douglas, about 1,260 miles north of the state capital of Brisbane.

Queensland ambulance service spokesman Bob Hamil confirmed that a diver had been killed by a stingray off Lowe Isles Reef but refused to say who the victim was until relatives had been notified.

A rescue helicopter was sent from the nearby city of Cairns, and paramedics from it confirmed the diver's death.

"The probable cause of death is stingray strike to the chest," Hamil said.

Staff at Australia Zoo, Irwin's zoo in southern Queensland, said they had heard the reports but could not comment.

Irwin is famous for his enthusiasm for wildlife and his catchcry "Crikey!" in his television program "Crocodile Hunter," which was first broadcast in Australia in 1992 and has aired around the world on the Discovery channel.

He rode his image into a feature film, and developed the Australia Zoo as a tourist attraction.

Irwin had received some negative publicity in recent years. In January 2004, he stunned onlookers at the Australia Zoo reptile park by carrying his 1-year-old son into a crocodile pen during a wildlife show. He tucked the infant under one arm while tossing the 13-foot reptile a piece of meat with the other.

Authorities declined to charge Irwin for violating safety regulations.

Later that year, he was accused of getting too close to penguins, a seal and humpback whales in Antarctica while making a documentary. Irwin denied any wrongdoing, and an Australian Environment Department investigation recommended no action be taken.

Irwin was also seen as a vocal critic of wildlife hunts in Australia. The federal government recently dropped plans to allow crocodile safaris for wealthy tourists in the Northern Territory following his vehement objections.

Irwin told the Australian television program "A Current Affair" that "killing one of our beautiful animals in the name of trophy hunting will have a very negative impact on tourism, which scares the living daylights out of me."

He is survived by his American wife Terri, from Oregon, and their daughter Bindi Sue, 8, and son Bob, who will turn 3 in December.

Re: Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed

Really. Is it true. Almost a year ago I heard he's killed by a croc in Thailand.

Re: Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed

He must have aggravated it somehow. Steve Irwin was both brave and stupid for the things he did...but mostly stupid. Stingrays don't attack unless provoked...either that or he got way to close to one of them and got hit accidentally. I just hope his family will get along eventually and his son or daughter won't try the same stuff in the future.

Re: Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed

Gee, I'd say he was really unlucky. Stingrays only stink attackers when provoked and when it stings, it's usually not fatal. In Steve's case, he was stabbed right through the heart. Really unfortunate. Well, I never really got to watch the show cause my parents wouldn't get cable. But I got every chance to see his shows whenever I was at a place where I got cable. He was a brave and kind man. Kind to all animals and he showed us that there isn't really that much of a rift between humans and animals. He was a hero and an inspiration to many people. Not to mention entertaining too. At least he died while doing something that he really enjoyed doing. Let's not be too harsh people, he was one of us. Let's give a toast and a moment of silence for him. God help his family too. Well done mate, well done.

Re: Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed

he never knew what he was doing. I study herpotology and from what I saw he made MANY mistakes. One major one was every venemous snake he found, he tail-handled. 1: that is a very good way to hurt the snake. 2: the snake can easily climb up it's own body. 3: it just gives the snake better leverage when it strikes.

He was a nice guy yes, but from the first ep of croc hunter I saw, I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later... I'll miss his wackiness at it truly is a shame, but he just didn't know what he was doing, and he danced with death.
