Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin Killed

Steve Irwin, known the world over as The Crocodile Hunter, has been killed whilst filming off the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

Apparently he was hit in the chest by the Barb of a Sting-Ray initiating a Cardiac Arrest. He died at the scene despite attempts to revive him.

Bit of a shock to hear that an iconic figure such as Steve Irwin has left this Mortal Coil, I have always enjoyed his unique style of presenting and so have my children. He will be missed. I expect Australia is in a state of shock today.

He was a complete nutter mind, always pushing his luck with wild and dangerous creatures, but we loved him for it, the world is a smaller place without him.

OMIGOD......

I know Irwin annoyed the crap outta me, but he was an excellent and knowledgeable presenter - and obviously loved animals....'infectious' was always the word used....

I feel sympathy for Terri, his wife, and their children.

He was definitely a nutter and the world will miss such an enthuiastic conservationist. I always suspected an animal would one day get the better of him but always thought it would be a big old croc.
