Damn, that sucks. I guess you can always say he went out doing what he loved.

Yea, that is really sad. I love watching his show. Of all the daring things he's ever done, I never expected him to die from a stingray. May God bless his family.

My smypathy and heart felt emotions goes out to his wife Terri and the children and to Steve's extendended family.

Now having said the above...This guy deserved what he got. I am tired of hearing all the fluff from the news media about what a great conservationist he was and how this was a horrible accident.

This was no accident...I will bet my bottom dollar that Steve was looking for for the best camera shot and probably annoyed the shit out of that Stingray just like he does in many of the Croc films you see of him angering the animals to get an exciting camera shot.

This BS about conservation and making films to show the public all about animal life is just an excuse to continue the quest to be Mr. Hollywood...he got a taste of the good life and was not about to let that go. That goes for most of those animal shows not just the Croc hunter.

The ZOO is also a for profit venture for the tourists. The animals are captured/trapped and stuck in pens for our viewing pleasure and we are told how much better their lives are in captivity...all BS.

I am capitalist pig. I love Money and what it does to make a better lifestyle. However I don't make up reasons and excuses to chase after a dream.

Damn Kayak, how do you really feel?

At the end of the day, I think he did more good than bad. RIP Crocodile Hunter.
