that lead to his demise. If its the latter i understand.

Jokes aside, damn, stone me, poor bugger.

The job he did always carried a ginormous risk, but i feel for his loved ones.

We're not saying a stingray is a 'punk' death, but that it's ironic he spent so much of his life with snakes and crocs, but what ultimately killed him was a totally unrelated animal from a different phylum. I figured if I he ever did get killed by an animal, it would be a snake or croc.

I was the one who said he went out like a punk, and I suppose those are strong words - but I really think even he'd have preferred to go out against a giant croc.

You know... Steve Irwin was one of the few decent people doing something good in this world. I think it's a damn shame this happened to a top bloke like him and I'm sure he would have had plenty of good years left.

You will be sorely missed cobber.

As am i.

If its true or not its wrong to make a joke of the circumstances. I do have repect for the guys talent and i respect what he was trying to do for public misconception with the animals he delt with. He also has a scence of enthusiasm with his work that i envy as such.

Sorry guys with the bad joke.

It was on the news (TV), with the people who were filming the documentary. Here's a link to an Australian newspaper:

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/

They called it an accidental death on TV... but it was no "accident" - he was attacked by a stingray! Alright, it's not common to die from it... but it's no more an "accident" then dying from a shark bite. The stingray barb went through his chest and punctured his heart.

PS: He was only popular in the USA.

Yeah, perhaps, but getting SIMULTANEOUSLY STABBED AND STUNG IN THE HEART is pretty damn hardcore if you ask me.

Not true. He was very popular in England and today my inbox was full of e-mails from my friends talking back and forth about his death.

Yeah, my kids watch him every day on discovery kids here in the UK. How come he want as big as a celeb in Australia then?

I heard he was annoying and all the people imitating his accent.

In all seriousness I'm honestly shocked that Steve Irwin was killed by a dangerous animal, almost as shocked as I was when Dale Earnheardt was killed in a race car.

I did not see this coming.

As an Australian, I would say that he is perhaps a little less popular here than he is in the US. Strangely enough, we only got the first season of his show on free-to-air TV, and then nothing. When I was in the US, I saw him on Animal Planet all the time. But everyone in Australia knows him, for sure - and we even imitated him from time to time, on TV shows and in day-to-day joking around.

But he was pretty much the face of Australian tourism, and while we were sometimes annoyed that our whole country had come to be associated with his exaggerated 'ocker' accent and generally crazy antics, we were also proud to have a daredevil tough-ass representing us as well. He has done a lot to raise awareness of wildlife around the world, educating people about the dangers of the bush. He has also done a world of good for Australian tourism, and he did seem like a really top bloke. News of his death has dominated the media over the last day and a bit, and people all over the country are mourning his death.

When I heard about the news my heart just broke in half. The dude that told me, I didn't believe him. I thought that he was just being an ass and I said, "So, what other childhood heroes of mine are going to die today? Bill Nye the Science Guy? Alton Brown?" I couldn't believe it. And then it was all over the news and the rest of my Labor day wasn't the same...

Steve Irwin - you made reptiles fun. You made conservation feel like a noble cause. And now you leave behind two children who will only know you through the hours and hours of film footage shot over the past 8 years.

Here's to you, man. You died doing what you loved. And we can only wish for the same fate.

Dude what is wrong with you? Are you out of touch with reality? He was killed while filming sting-rays for his newest documentary, the details of his death (a puncture to, or close to his heart) have been made public. He was killed, end of story - why is there someone who always just can't take reality?

Poor Steve Irwin. Its a tragedy this happened. I liked his show and he was a good person. At least he did die doing what he loved.

Is it me, or has this death been one of the most lamented on this forum's history, for some reason?
