Steve Irwin the Australian Crocodile Hunter was killed by a Sting Ray barb that went through his chest. I knew his days were numbered. His antics were simply careless.

Crikey!

The actual circumstances to his death are still not clear. We don't know if he was attacked or whether he was being stupid and trying to cuddle the Stingray. He was great entertainment but on the whole he took far to many risks. He died doing the thing he loved the most, but leaving a young family behind is the part I find the most sad.

He will be greatly missed, as for being careless and taking too many risks, it was his choice, no one would ever of got closer to wild animals, so I cant say that he was being stupid, he was doing something he loved and was highly passionate about.

He's a fucking legend. May he go and tickle crocs in heaven.
Genuine LOL. :lol:

He was a good guy but he was also a loon! How in the name of the wee man do you get stung through the heart by a Stingray, one of the most passive seacreatures there is!? I bet he was trying to give the thing a cuddle.

RIP mate.

Yep good guy who made his fortune through some crazy and dangerous antics... live buy the sword... die by the sword or stingray... weird all of all the things in Aus' that can curl your toes up and let's face it he wound up most of them at some point or other... he had to go out that way!!

Did a lot of good work for animals though and will be sadly missed I'm sure... :applause:

Poor guy. Was a funny character and his show was fun to watch. They say the sting was only the 3rd time in Australian history from a stingray and that he most likely died due to the puncture in the heart, and not poison.

RIP.

I've watched too many shows/programmes on Discovery Channel when i was child. He was great. He made lots of risky movements. I thought that Steve Irwin will die with crocodile attack. Who can think murdering? RIP Steve Irwin.

Top top bloke, he loved his work, the animals and entertaining folk with his unique brand of education & gripping TV. The world is a worse place without Steve Irwin, a true legend.

He was plain careless. One time he was feeding a croc a dead chicken with his infant son in his other arm. Got a lot of flak for it.
