I was heartbroken when I heard about Steve Irwin's death. I loved to watch him and his family. He truly loved animals and loved his family and staff so very much. I prayers go out to his family and staff. His poor little girl Bindi was so close to him, she and her mother must be taking this hard. Bob, the son, is most likely to young to really understand what's happened. Steve Irwin will be greatly missed.
Poppyrce, do you know how fast a croc can charge 5 feet? It was not blown out of proportion, it was a very foolish playing up to the camera on his part. I never said anything like he deserved to die, that is terrible. I just pointed out he lived his life daring wild animals and it seems to have caught up to him. I do feel sorry for his family.
It is really sad that a person that most people children and adults alike have posted some really nice things. Then there are some that did not care for him much but still had nice things to say. (I do agree with the person that needed zanex to watch him. He was very active.)
Then there are the ones that just can't help being so negative even when someone is dead. Oh Well to each their own. Just happy most people do feel for someone that is so admired. Just how many people here have made mistakes. We just don't have camera's following us around do we?
I saw the tribute on Sunday night. It was mainly clips of his past shows and parts of interviews with him explaining why he felt this or that on each issue. It also included clips of interviews with his wife talking about him as a man, a father, an animal supporter. It just brought tears at my eyes.
BTW, his family turned down the state funeral that was offered. His father said that his son was a regular "bloc" (sp?) and he wouldn't have wanted that. I can't say that I blame them.
Yes, I herd that and I just couldn't believe it. I've been watching his program sens I can remember. He has a wife and two young kids. And died because of a stingray stong across his chest which then give him a hart attack., or how every you spell that word. If I was his wife I would make sure every time he went under water, he goes protected. He likes to be un protected with dealing with animals, you never know when they will strink and when the last straw will be. I just hate that he died because of something that could have been prevented. His wife must be in great pain right now, I can imagine what she is going through. I just still can't believe he is gone.
He lived life to the fullest and I dont think anyone thought he was risking life and limb diving with a sting ray. Having one flip totally upside down while swiming and striking upwards is a very rare occurance in deed. We catch them all the time while fishing off of SC and never think of it being a deadly game. It was a total "freak accident" and maybe Gods will. None of us know our time. Thankfully it was quick and while doing what he loved most = experiancing life to it's fullest.
