    This is a more thorough story. I think this only just happened. The information is only just coming out...

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems...9/s1732439.htm

    And another story on it.


    The tragic thing about this, is just how great a guy he was. I mean, being an Australian, he was not really that special here.. I mean everyone knew him, but no one got excited over him.

    What I think is tragic is that from everything I have ever heard him say you know one thing for certain, he was a completely honest, genuine, passionate guy who dedicated his life to helping the world. Not to mention his wife and two young daughters.

    So i quite sincerely think this is a real tradgedy.

    Actually, this might be a good insight into who he was:
    http://www.abc.net.au/tv/enoughrope/...s/s1071026.htm

    That is the transcript of an interview on an Australian program "Enough Rope". It is a program where Andrew Denton (A very clever quick witted interviewer) interviews some of the most famous people in the world (And australia). he usually asks all the right questions...

    Re: Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) Dead!

    I just read about this tonight on Yahoo news. I can't believe he is dead. I have always enjoyed Mr. Irwin's television shows and what is even more nice, His t.v. shows were always closed captioned for Deaf people like me. I agree this is a terrible day for Australia as well as here in the USA and in the world too. I can not imagine what his family is going through and especially the grief and tears his mother must be going through. Keep Mr. Irwin's family in your prayers. God Bless ..... :(

    Life's precious... enjoy and make the most of EVERY minute. Carpe Diem!

    Sieze the day.

    I watched Steve many times and was amazed at his work and daring spirit.

    Years ago when I was very young I imagined that I wanted to do what

    he did. There was a man named "Ross Allen" at Silver Springs, FLorida that

    was a Herpetologists that participated in a lot of the same work as Steve.

    Mr Allen passed away several years ago. He was bittend many times by

    venoumous snakes, but survived this and died in his advanced years.

    Larry King Live (CNN) is going to show a re-run tonight of an earlier interview with Steve Irwin. Also, Animal Planet is planning on doing a Tribute tonight featuring some of the Crocodile Hunter segments.

    I will miss him. :(

    A pretty thorough story on what happened.

    Wikipedia has been thoroughly updated already too and listed as a "Current Event"

    Absolutely. And I don't think anyone could have epitomised that advice more than Steve Irwin.
