The croc hunter is no more, according to the news he was stung by stingray while doing a new show. Who's going to keep the croc's in shape....:eek:
Seriously my daughter and I use to enjoy sitting down for a session of the croc hunter, he will be sadly missed. :frown:

If you swim with sharks yer gonna get ate.....

If you spend your whole life p!ss!ng off the wild-life, one day it's gonna come back and bite you in the backside (O.k.... stab you in the heart)

Karma is a harsh mistress

it's kinda sad though, because he had an 8 year old and a 3 year old.

Steve Irwin was a man who truly loved nature and by all accounts did much for the environment in his native Australia and elsewhere.


Although it can be said that he took many risks in his life, this was a freak accident. Stingrays are NOT known to be agressive and stings from their barbs generally result in a painful welt. Fatalities are almost nonexistant.

For him to be stabbed directly in the heart (and according to his companions and the videotape he was NOT bothering the creature) is nothing but a terrible fluke.


I liked him. I sensed a passion and sincerity in him that we could all benefit from.

Yea he was a remarkable dude... he always lived on the edge when it came to the animals. Would you dare jump in and wrestle a croc ??? He was one of my daughters favorites. I'm sure he'll be missed around the world.

ROFL??? How old ARE you?? You have an extremely juvenile sense of humour...

Steve Irwin did more for wildlife in 44 years than most people do in a lifetime. He was an amazing man and will be greatly missed. Children were crying over his loss, which seriously makes me wonder how old YOU are.

Grow up!

When you work at an occupation there are risks, I work with electricity and understand the risks but there is always the unforseen, the fluke, the bad moment when something can happen. There is no irony there, just tragedy,


advice.... reach for flame suit....:eek:

You've crossed the line with this one. Uncool. You really need to start thinking quality instead of quantity with your posting.

you know what. you're right. im sorry. I've had a really bad day. my best friend is off at university, and im back at high school in classes with a bunch of people that I don't know. and to top it off, the two other box boys aren't working the same shifts that I am anymore. So work is gonna suck too.

Sorry guys.

It is ironic though that a guy who made his living getting up close with the worlds deadliest creatures should be killed by a supposed gentle one . News reports say that only 17 people have been killed by stingrays in the past 100 years ( I may have been dreaming I heard that on CBC ?? )
He is getting props from all over the world though and was offered a state funeral in Australia so shows you what kind of impact he had .

agreed . Working with wildlife can never be certain I guess , look at the Las Vegas guy and the tigers ? Those were his pets and he still was almost killed by it.
People that keep attack type dogs also , I think it's a time bomb waiting to go off , and most of them have little skill in training , just like the dog cause it's tough >I have met some very nice pit bulls but I would still be wary with children around . Hell I had a dog once that I wouldn't let out of my sight if people were over as he couldn't be trusted no matter how hard I tried to socialize him and he was scary big . anyway , off topic.

That most certainly wouldn't be what Steve the Croc hunter would have wanted

Guys, bashing Steve Irwin right now is really in poor taste.

RIP Steve.


You made a difference and MANY people all over the world loved you for it.
