Default R.I.P. Steve Irwin

I never liked the guy with his macho behavior, but he did a world of good for
the animals. R.I.P.

Animals lost a good spokesperson with the death of Steve. RIP Steve.

Very sad indeed, but at least it wasn't due to a croc like everyone thought would happen.

Why though was it a stingray? I thought you could get help for that right off and be fine?

Not if the barb goes right into the heart...only 3 or 4 people ever died from
stingray barbs dating back to 1938.

I liked him alot and that doesn't go for many animal people on TV. I think Steve genuinely loved and respected animals so I had alot of respect for him.

That incident with his son I think was overplayed. I believe he had everything under control.

People like Mark Morone, even Jack Hannah I just can't trust. I get bad feelings that off the screen they aren't so loving, kind or respectful of animals.
