Crikey, The Croc Hunter is Dead

Steve IrwinSteve Irwin, aka the crocodile hunter is dead – actually you probably aren’t that surprised to hear this, after all he did make it his life’s work to wind up the most dangerous animals on the planet. Ironically he was killed by an animal not known for being very dangerous, a stingray. The stingray barb pierced his chest while he was diving next to it, making a hole straight through his heart. Reports say he died instantly.

Steve’s habit of annoying animals for our entertainment earnt him a lot of critics. He was especially slated for teasing a crocodile whilst holding his baby. However he is also being remembered as an Australian cultural icon and for his work running zoos and animal sanctuaries. The Australian Prime Minister John Howard said in a press conference, “Steve was also a passionate environmentalist who used his television programs and his award-winning Australia Zoo to promote a serious conservation message.”
