Stunnings news out of Australia that Steve Irwin died from a stingray barb while filming a documentary. I first became aware of him during a holiday weekend marathon of his show “The Crocodile Hunter” some years back. I was pretty captivated with the show and sent him an e-mail. He and his wife sent me an autographed postcard and info on the Australia zoo. The postcard was also signed “Crocs Rule” by his wife. I have to dig it up but will scan it in at some point.
Even though he worked with deadly creatures all the time, it is still quite a shock to hear of his demise. I am saddened by the news of his death.
