CRIKEY!!!! The Croc Hunter is Dead!
It is being reported by Reuters wire service that Australian real world Pitfall Harry, Steve Irwin, died today. Irwin, famous for his wild antics wrestling crocodiles and enraging venomous snakes around the globe, was said to be filming a documentary when he was stung in the chest by a stingray barb.
Irwin was one of the main reasons that Animal Planet, a Discovery channel owned station, took off and made itself a mark in the vast sea of cable TV. His child like excitment of nature was contagious and he was one of the few guys that could make poking a viper with a stick seem fun and light hearted.
At least he died doing what he loved. And thats all we can really ask for from death.
