The Crocodile hunter killed...by a stingray.

Wow, that's just...fucked up.

Hmmm...not at all how anyone expected him to go.

Yeah, I heard it just as it was announced.

How sad.

I'm going to miss his show.

With all the chances he took with crocodiles and snakes, a freak incident with a stingray was not the expected way for him to go. Supposedly they don't even act in that manner normally. Guess that is why it caught him off guard.

Nope, they don't... they're one of the safest sea critters out there. You can pet them, hold on to their 'wings' and go for a ride, even feed them safely if you hold your hand right (kinda like with a horse, so your fingers don't get mistaken for food, lol). Somehow he managed to startle it, and it just happened to hit him in exactly the right spot.

I think it is very sad. I really liked watching him on Animal Planet. He's done so much for Australia Zoo and taught so many people so much. I feel very bad for his wife and 2 kids - they are only 8 and 2.

And this boys and girls is what we refer to as irony.
