Default Croc Hunter dies in accident ...

Hey, I dunno if any of you out there did watch our man Steve Irwin -- famously known as the Croc hunter , in action . I used to luv watching his shows as I thought he was made to wade into mucky waters in his khaki bermudas looking for crocs & alligators ( I cant stand them ) and he made it look so simple . I always used to say that one day a Croc will get the better of him ... but unfortunately he died in a freak incident while swimming in the Aussie reed shooting some documentary . He got stung by a stingray .. and it was lethal .....

May his soul rest in peace .... !!! I enjoyed your shows ....

Cheers

Hey man, I was just about to make this thread. I was deeply saddened. Been watching his shows since 1998...I'll miss his zest for life.

RIP Stevie.

Sad to hear that. Was not following all his shows, but used to watch him with awe whenever I happened to surf that channel. I was very angry with him when he used his small kid in one of his shows in Australia. May his soul rest in peace.

Saw that in BBC today morning. Told my colleagues here. All are sad.
Don't think there will anyone like him again. Enjoyed it eveytime.
Deep loss for all his fans..

Sad to hear that. Lost a good
Though it was good entertainment, i feel bad for the animals that he (man) handled for the sake of TV. I just hope the others in the similar genre leave those animals alone and just not tease/touch them (Attenborough is the way to go)

Man that is sad. Used to love watching his programmes. He was like the Jeremy Clarkson of reptile shows. Funny as hell.

But, i guess he always knew his job was dangerous.
