Crocodile Hunter is dead

Posted by on Monday, 4 September, 2006

Well this is totally unrelated to anything I’ve ever written about, but I’m sad and shocked after reading that Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin is dead.

In a twist of fatal irony, while filming a documentary which aimed to demystify the stingray, he was killed by a barb from a stingray whcih went right through his chest into his heart.

I guess he died while doing what he did best and what he loved to do, and some may argue that it’s a miracle he stayed alive in such a high risk job for so long, but it’s still a huge tragedy.

Good Bye Steve, and thanks for all the great television memories.
