I saw the news late last night that Mr Irwin was barbed fatally by a -- get this -- sting-ray...

Apparently, he was swimming near his homeland, filming a documentary, when he pissed off a sting-ray, who had no qualms about stabbing him in the chest.

I, for one, was a fan...I mean, who else is crazy enough to wrestle with 12-foot crocodiles on film? His psycho ass will be missed. I believe Animal Planet is going to run a super long marathon of his show.

It appears that there is video of the actual attack, and chances are it'll show up online soon...I'll be on the lookout. Word is it's pretty rough footage...

This is crazy simply because I went to Jamacia literally 2 weeks ago, and swam with wild stingrays. They told me they were harmless :-\

I'll won't say he 'got what he deserved' because he's only done good. He's only tried to educate people about the wild and wild animals.
It's like saying to a cop 'you choose to be a cop, you deserve to get shot.' The cop has a potential to get shot.. but definitely doesn't deserve it.
I will however say that it doesn't surprise me - and I too thought t would have happened sooner.

maybe a little extreme.. but you get the idea.
