It's a sad day...

Steve Irwin, known to millions of people around the world as “The Crocodile Hunter” was killed in a freak accident yesterday. The Australian TV personality gained world wide attention when he began working on television shows for Animal Planet and the Discover Channel in 1996. He was known for his over the top antics and his apparent lack of fear when approaching dangerous animals. Steve was seen as both an avid environmentalist and one of the most knowledgeable reptile experts in the world. Steve was killed by a Bull Stingray that was hidden under the sand late Monday afternoon in Australia. He was filming a documentary and passed over the top of a submerged ray who then stabbed it's poisoned barb into his chest. It was a very unfortunate accident and Steve died within minutes. Steve Irwin is sure to be missed. I for one, will always remember his cries of "Crikey!" as he chased around the creatures he loved so much.
