Well, you know, his wife was treking mountains in Tasmania while he was filming dangerous sea creatures... Wow, safe family.

Though, I never really liked his show, I really am sad that he died. He had kind of become the "Guy who could piss any animal off and live". But really, I figured he'd get killed by a snake, crocodile, or a bear, not a sting ray...
Getting a tan while everyone else is in a blizzard... >.<

He just pushed his luck one too many times. :(

That's what happens when you spend your life screwing around near dangerous animals, kids. Be safe: stay at home and pet a kitty! (Unless you're allergic to them, then find something else to pet, just avoid things like porcupines, skunks, and cacti.)

I heard about this last night. It's a real loss for Austrailia.
Though, it's almost comical that the Crocodile Hunter was killed by a stingray of all probable things.

When I heard the news last night I cast my vote to let him into heaven. :wink:

The wierdest thing ever happened to me last night. I was watching Animal Planet, which i havnt done in years and i saw a commercial for a Steve Irwin show and i said to my roomate, "Wow i havnt heard anything about him in forever. I figured he was dead or something." Well my roomate was on the computer so he googled Steve Irwin and reads outloud, "Steve Irwin is dead". So im like, no way, thats a joke. So we keep looking and we find more and more articles about his death. The wierd thing is, this news was only 5 minutes old! What a coincidence, Right?

Oh, and you people who are saying its hilarious need to shut the hell up. Why is it funny that a guy with a wife and 2 young kids gets killed. Yea, he probably had it coming cause of what he does, but its still not funny. He was a good guy. Show a little respect.
