Steve Irwin dies…Posted: September 4, 2006
There are unconfirmed reports that Steve Irwin, Australia’s very own crocodile hunter, has died after being stung by a sting ray in Queensland. Amazingly, every major news website in Australia has seemingly crashed under the resultant strain, including The Age, ABC, news.com.au and nineMSN. I must say I’m saddened to hear of the news, if it is indeed true, as Steve Irwin was certainly one to be admired for his passion for Australian fauna and efforts to promote and protect it across the world. My wishes go out to his wife and kids.
