I'm very, very sad to report that Steve Irwin, the zany, loveable guy also known as "The Crocodile Hunter" has been killed in a tragic accident with a stingray.
I was really upset to hear this news. Steve, while a maniac, seemed like a genuinely sweet, caring, down-to-earth human being who loved his family and animals passionately. My deepest condolences to his wife, Terri, and his two small children, Bindi and Bob.
It's really amazing how things happen. All the deadly, dangerous animals he constantly was wrestling with or throwing about, and he's killed by a usually non-deadly stingray. I suppose at the very least we can say he died doing something that he truly loved.
You will be missed, Steve Irwin! It is a sad, sad day. :-(
