Poor Steve... I was a pretty big closet fan of his. And to go out like this, not even done in by a crocodile?  =( It's a sad day for animal documentaries. 

Pretty depressing stuff, his wife not knowing even before the press hit (apparently).  His daughter, Bendi should be about 8 years old now, not sure about his other kid... Either way, sad situation.

PS: Jesus, Griff you even SCOOPED me on the news link I had... the same one!

Yeah, it is true... http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14663786/

I knew he'd get it one day "Crikey!!!  He's a feisty one!" (No disrespect...)

He pushed it to the limit.

Jesus, I didn't even know about this until now, that's too bad.

When he got all that trouble after holding his daughter while feeding a Croc, it was so unfair. Now this. :'(

yea.  I'm surprised it wasn't by a croc.  But that dude would have probably have to fuck pretty royaly to get killed via croc.  He was a friggin' expert.  I'd imagine he was a bit out of his depth (pun not intended) with the stingrays.

But its a shame, really.  He may have been a bit cooky but he did a ton to raise natural awareness
I'm sick of following my dreams.  I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later...

We will always remember him for his accomplishments as a animal lover and comments he made about them. We might even talk about him to our grandchildren if we get any. R.I.P Steve Irwin A.K.A Crocodile Hunter

Personally I think it's better for him to go out like that than a car accident or cancer. It's a tribute to a guy whos lived a life like him. I'm also glad for his sake it wasn't a Croc, better a different killer creature than that he was a professional of.

Awww man...poor guy.  I feel really bad for his family.  He'll definitely be missed.  I'm also glad he wasn't killed by a crocodile...that would've been ridiculous.

Damn.  I used to watch his show all the time back when we had cable.

Were not too much to pay for birth.

Very depressing... I read his autobiography in high school, and he seemed like a very nice guy. I pray for his soul to RIP. He was a good man, and always tried his best to save animals and tell people on TV how they get mistreated sometimes...

My brother and I used to watch The Crocodile Hunter Diaries all the bloody time back in England. I can't believe he's dead. *sigh*, even though he was an absolute nut, I'm going to be sad to know he's not around anymore. My thoughts go out to his wife and kids.

Rest in Peace, Steve

RIP Steve Irwin, Australia (and the world) will miss you. It's a sad happening, and unfortunately one that works well as a remainder of the dangers of wildlife, even in our modern times. My thoughts go to his kids.

Kinda reminds me some lines from berserk in the first volume when Guts is on the carriage with the priest and the daughter, that the priest tells Guts about his nephew who died as a mercenary and Guts says " I bet he died happy doing what he liked" So in a way Steve was in a way in the same situation.

I have been watching his documentaries for some years, and i must say he was a real Croc expert, I have not seen anyone like him so professional and having such guts to deal with Croc...

Now its really a pity that such expert like him forever gone...

RIP Stevie.  Glad he was doing what he loved to do when he passed on.  I'll add my humble condolences to his family.  There will be a lot less 'Crikey' in the world from now on.

Who's gonna molest all the crocodiles now?  Now crocodiles have no natural predator, and their gonna get all uppity.

Jokes aside, he was batshit insane but a good guy in spite of it.  Just proves that life gets you when you don't see it coming.

Yes this is indeed very sad. Kinda strange how he died though, guess mother nature has a way of getting you after years of exploiting crocodiles (just kidding, I loved watching his shows). I wonder if he let out one last "Kranky".

Not at all since he never said that.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.
