So Steve Irwin, known to most as the Crocodile Hunter, finally met his match today off the coast of Australia. Irwin was fatally stung by a stingray after swimming too close. From a Yahoo! News article:
“Irwin was at Batt Reef, off the remote coast of northeastern Queensland state, shooting a segment for a series called “Ocean’s Deadliest” when he swam too close to one of the animals, which have a poisonous barb on their tails, his friend and colleague John Stainton said.”
Steve was something of a national hero in Australia it seems, and I was a fan, so I’ve got a few songs in memorial. Everybody go check out some Discovery Channel or go to a zoo while it’s still warm out, it’s what Steve would have wanted.
