    Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin dead

    THE Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, is dead.

    He was killed in a freak accident in Cairns, police sources said. It is understood he was killed by a sting-ray barb that went through his chest.

    He was swimming off the Low Isles at Port Douglas filming an underwater documentary and that's when it occured.

    Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality this morning at Batt Reef off Port Douglas.

    Such sad news....

    I always felt this guy was pushing the was only a matter of time. Very sad.

    Very sad. He was amazing in the lengths he would go to. Pure insanity. Yes he did push it a bit. Still I am sorry to see he has died. But what a way to live!!

    Oh he definately lived life on the edge. But he really was genuinally concerned about the welfare of animals. His profits went a lot to the care of them. He helped with Australian tourism too.

    I feel sorry for his wife and children that are left behind.


    OMG...I just can't believe this! I'm in shock....this is sooooo sad!

    I always remember when that frilled lizard went for his nose.

    So sad, especially for his kids.
