Reuters is reporting that Steve Irwin, otherwise known as The Crocodile Hunter has died as a result of an encounter with a stingray. Crikey! Steve’s work in conservation and quarantine will be missed.
Edit: For those who would like to contribute to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin’s cause, make a donation to his Wildlife Warriors charity, adopt an animal at the Australia Zoo or just take care of the wildlife in your local area, see if your local rescue shelter is in need of blankets, food or a helping hand.
If you’ve never seen what a stingray barb looks like, here’s a photo of one.
