In Memory

Just logged onto the internet and read the news that Steve Irwin, better known as The Crocodile Hunter, died from a stingray strike while filming a special in Australia. Read the story here.

While I am not shocked by the manner of his death, I am deeply saddened. I loved watching Steve Irwin, and his dedication to animals was foremost in his life. Since I am a huge animal person myself, I could appreciate the work he did and the thrill he derived from doing it. The only caveat is that he died doing what he loved to do while alive.

It's a huge loss for Australia and the many animal organization and zoos he worked with.

My condolences to his wife and children.
