    What a terrible loss. I loved watching his shows on TV.
    My heart goes out to his family.



    SYDNEY -- World-renowned "crocodile hunter" and television environmentalist Steve Irwin has died following a stingray attack in northeastern Australia, local government sources said Monday.

    Irwin, 44, known for his enthusiastic approach to even the deadliest of wildlife, was killed when a stingray barb punctured his chest during the filming and underwater documentary, the sources quoted by the Australian Associated Press said.

    The larger-than-life Irwin, dubbed "The Crocodile Hunter" after the nature documentary series he hosted, was filming off the coast of Port Douglas in the state of Queensland when the accident took place.

    Killed by a sting ray????

    So does that mean he left his heart in SanFransisco...............BAY????


    You know the sting ray just moved up on the worlds most dangerous animals list, its now more dangerous than a Crocodile, can you imagine the coversation in the animal kingdom???

    Probably went something like this........"that will teach him to take small children to close to dangerous animals....."

    Guess no one remembers that incident, w/ his own kid.......lost my respect for him when he did that move......sorry if this post offends anyone.....but it was almost as bad as the king of pop dangiling his child from the balcony.....
