Tributes for The Crocodile Hunter, father of two

We don’t typically post passings but he has two small children.

Animal lover and environmentalist Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, has been tragically killed whilst filming a nature documentary off Australia’s Queensland coast. Steve, 44, was swimming in Batt Reef when freakishlystruck in the chest by a stingray barb. Wife Terri and two kids Bindi Sue, 8, and Robert (Bob), 2 1/2, were in Tasmania at the time and were sadly informed by police of the accident. The Crocodile Hunter is hugely admired in Australia, as he is worldwide, and the Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard, had this to say: "I am quite shocked and distressed at Steve Irwin’s sudden, untimely and freakish death … It’s a huge loss to Australia."
