    I couldn't believe that when I read about it.  I started crying sitting here at my desk.  It is very sad.

    I just read about it myself, he will be missed. He did wonderful things to help the people of the world see animals the way he saw them. Rest in peace

    I know...Its horrible Kasey.  I have been crying for hours now and I can't stop.  I can't stop thinking about his poor family, his wife Terri and his two kids that are 8 and 2 years old.  What a horrible thing =(  R.I.P Steve!!!

    Isn't it? The only reason I watched it is because my cousin who I'm extremely close to watched it as a kid, it was her favorite. So now I'm all depressed .

    The loss of Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter is truely one of the biggest things our world has lost. May he be happy at the beautiful zoo in Heaven. I also hope his son will recieve great training from Terri and hopefully become the next crocodile hunter just like how Steve wanted him to be once he had to leave. We'll miss you.

    He was my idol from since I was like 8. I wanted so much to meet him. He's done so much great work. I'm still in shock.

    Dead?

    CRIKEY!

    I'm surprised he wasn't using one of his kids as bait during filming of the stingrays.

    R.I.P. Steve and condolences to his family as I'm sure they come here to read these forums.

    It might have been cruel but it was hilarious. I am sorry he died but I am not depressed about and I am certainly not crying about it.
