Stingray Killings

At least 10 stingrays have been found dead on Qld beaches since the death of Steve Irwin last week.,00.html

This just makes me sick to my stomach. I really can't understand why anyone would do such a horrible thing. I hope the bastards who are doing this are caught before we lose any more of these beautiful creatures.

This is the last thing in the world Steve would want to happen. I feel so ANGRY right now.

It truly is the last thing he would want.
How people can be so utterly cruel and stupid is beyond me.

The problem is that people will now perceive them as a threat.

Even if the real risk is minute.

Steve would be very heartbroken to know this is being done.

What? Don't these people realize this is what Steve was trying to avoid?

I talked with my dad about this after Steve's death. Each year, he fishes of the Gulf Coast in Alabama, and stringrays are a frequent catch (not by choice). I explained that they're really not all that dangerous. I spent a week swimming in the ocean off the coast of Florida in May and packs of them came by every few minutes. It was almost like they preferred to have company while swimming, as long as they're not cornered or threatened.

As far as I'm concerned, a stingray is no more inherently dangerous than your family dog, which would also lash out and bite if it was boxed in a someone jumped on top of it.

Wtf? It's not going to bring Steve back, and echoing the sentiments of everyone else who has posted, it's the exact opposite of what he would want.

People have their heads up their asses so much anymore.

I am certain Haliburton is involved. Think about it - these creatures get killed and "SUDDENLY" the stock market rebounds. God I hate Bush!

Let's try just for once to keep the partisan baiting out of an FYM thread, ok?
