Very shocking news, I'm still finding it hard to sink in....

Steve is a wonderful inspiration and he truly is the best ''Crocodile Hunter'' there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.

We will always love you Steve!

I'm listening to Midnight Oil in memory of Steve.

(They're from Australia and they stood for the environment, too. It's the first thing I though of, OK.)

I think I'm going to do something for the environment as well.

I can't believe he's gone. He was always so full of life and energy, it's an awful loss.

one of the news sites has

"Death by Animal"

well, it sounds like he went pretty fast

a poison barb to the heart.



I have always thought
one of the worst ways of dying would be death by animal
for some reason
I have thought about the giant monitor lizards
how horrible to be traveling in some tropical area and have one of those guys slowly swallow you

oh well
prayers and good thoughts
to Steve's family and friends

he made a wonderful contribution while he was here

John Stainton told reporters the footage, which he had handed to police, was the worst thing he had ever seen, Sydney's 2GB radio reported this morning.

"I have seen the footage and it's shocking," Mr Stainton said.

"It's a very hard thing to watch because you're watching somebody die and it's terrible."

Mr Stainton, also a producer and director of Irwin's popular television shows, said the footage showed Mr Irwin pulling the barb out of his chest before losing consciousness.

'The tail came up'

"It shows that Steve came over the top of the ray and the tail came up, and spiked him here (in the chest), and he pulled it out and the next minute he's gone.

"That was it. The cameraman had to shut down."

Mr Stainton, who was aboard Mr Irwin's vessel Croc One when the tragedy occurred, said it was likely the television star and naturalist died almost immediately as a result of the stingray's blow.

"(He was) probably a metre coming over the top of it," he said.

"He was underwater. I think, and the coroner's report will say what happened, but I think he died fairly instantly."

I have to say I always thought he was a bit of a dickhead and didn't always portray Australians in the best light (we don't all go around talking like Crocodile Dundee, you know) but there's no disputing he did a lot of good work for conservation.

Love him or hate him, I don't think anyone can deny that he was passionate about his cause and loved his job. He believed in what he was doing and his enthusiasm was contagious. All the Earth's creatures have lost a great friend. RIP, Steve.

RIP Steve. You could tell he loved animals, it wasn't a job to him, they were his passion. What a loss

Prayers to his wife and children.

You know, he just seemed kind of invincible somehow, even with all the dangerous stuff he did. He never seemed to get seriously hurt. I just kind of thought he'd live to be 90 telling his grandkids about all the amazing crazy things he did. This is so sad.
