The Crocodile Hunter

Well, it appears that the risks that Steve Irwin took throughout his very short life here on Earth took their toll ... article.

This just makes me sad. Such a tragic loss for his family and his friends. He would have been the first to say it wasn't the animal's fault for defending itself, because he truly understood that we are the ones encroaching on their territory.

Ace and I used to watch him quite a bit before we had kids. And ESPN had this really cute commercial during NCAA basketball time of Steve, tackling the Florida Gator mascot when the mascot got off the elevator right in front of Steve.

So sad...

I heard about this too. Very sad. He seemed like a neat guy. And he did appreciate the animal kingdom.

Just too bad.

I always marvel how people can put themselves in a dangerous position. There are people (not me!) who truly crave the thrill and excitement and adventure of the unknown.

I admire the Crocodile Hunter's courage and love for animals. He truly was a teacher.

A great ambassador for Australia and Wildlife around the world. He will be sorely missed. He is a legend and the world will be a sadder place for his loss. Crocs Rule!!

It is sad, but he died doing what he loved. Not a lot of people can say that.

His poor family though.

I can only imagine how all the kids who religiously watch his shows feel.
