    Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin Dies

    Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin Dies

    I'm in shock. I always thought it'd be a croc that would get him, if anything. His wife Terri doesn't even know, yet. They can't get a hold of her, sicne she's in Tasmania.

    I'm in shock, too! It just doesn't seem possible. My prayers go out to his wife and two children.

    How sad. My heart breaks for his wife and children. Maybe that he died doing something he loved will give them comfort.

    It is shock. It's surreal. I'm watching Animal Planet a little while ago, and a commercial comes on for a Croc hunter show later today....the announcer says "The croc hunter pushes his luck with......blah blah blah". Push his luck maybe, yes. But the man did a great deal for conservation and education, and reached a great number of people with his message. His poor family, he was far too young. I'm glad he at least died doing what he loved....for what little consolation that is.

    Steve Irwin was a wonderful, wonderful man and I'll admit I had a crush on him for years. Reports regarding his wife are conflicting - the local news still reported at 6:00 am CST that his wife still had not been informed as she was hiking in a remote area outside of Australia, yet a news article from Australia released a few hours ago quoted Irwin's best friend as saying that he had told his wife of the tragedy. It sounds like they were able to reach her. What a huge loss.

    We just dove with some enormous stingrays last winter for an Adventures Off Ice story and it's easy to forget around these normally gentle creatures that they have the potential to be deadly. I hope his family can take some solace that he died doing what he loved, and that thankfully it wasn't from a crocodile, the animal he worked so hard to protect.
