I totally disgree with u . You should have seen him handling reptiles he would never used any metal object or wooden sticks to handle them would always do bare hands.
Try loving your dog or ur pet with stick/metal and then with bare hands you will understand the difference. No hard feelings pls just my opinion.

All this seems very poetic....
Australia has a 60:40 split on the whole -
OH...IT'S SO SAD : OH...HE BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF / I TOLD YOU SO....
i believe in the latter 40 %.....
working in the Tourism/Hospitality industry....they just had a big loss....Period....

Its a very sad end to someone's life but i must admit some of his shows irritated me,especially when he almost put his baby in croc's jaws.Now if M.Jackson waves his baby to reporters/crowd from balcony,there is so much his criticism by western media but this guy never attracted much criticism.Mostly it was from individuals.
He was doing it all for money by making films and then selling to discovery.Not a good way to earn money.
Instead i like John Verti [i hope this is his real name] bcoz he never irritates/disturbs animals and shoot his video from some distance.
Steve would irritate/provocate animals just to add some masala to his films.
And i think i am only 3rd person outta >35 who posted, who dint like what he used to do.
May God rests his soul in peace.

Steve, or croc hunter as he is better know, surely knew the risks of his job. He took great risks and brought us a world that we would never have otherwise seen.
He died a painful and unexpected death. Let all join in and pray that his soul rests in peace and may God give strength to his wife and kids to bear with the loss. Its a loss for the whole world actually. I am really pained to hear his death. He was kind of a real animal friend.

My heart felt condolences to his family...
I agree to everyone who feels that his demise is a world mourning incident. I have been his ardent fan and will miss him for a long time. I wonder if anyone can take his place ever, some people are just one for the planet!!!

Could not believe it when I saw the news ticker on TV. You could like him or hate him, but then his shows were fun and I always enjoyed them. I am not sure whether his actions irritated the animals, as claimed by some of us here (only the animals can tell). But atleast he did not kill/hunt them and also created awareness among humans about them.
Only thing I hated him for was his taking his infant son along during the croc feeding session. I am sure he understood that it was wrong and promptly apologised for his action.
Steve, may your soul rest in peace. We will miss you.
