Crocodile Hunter Irwin Killed in Action

Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, was killed while filming an interaction with a stingray. For those of us who’ve watched him over the years, this isn’t a surprise — I remember an episode where he went around looking at rattlesnakes in various parts of the US, and repeatedly reached into a nest to pull out a snake. Ironically, according to news reports this was a freak accident, a sting that’s rarely fatal, but the barb went into his heart.

I’m glad it wasn’t one of his beloved “crocs” that killed him.
