Hunter becomes the Hunted.

Steve Irwin (22 Feb 1962 - 4 Sep 2006)

News reports world wide are reporting the passing of Steve 'Crocodile Hunter' Irwin. Steve Irwin has passed away at the age of 44. The much loved Crocodile Hunter died during a documentary filming at the Great Barrier Reef today after being stung by a Sting Ray. He was stung in the chest.

Irwin is also inspirational to many for his love of animals and the wildlife and their protection and conservation. He is also the man behind the Australia Zoo in Queensland Australia.

He has been a bit controversial at times but his passion for wildlife and his family always shone through. He was a great man with a big heart. He Leaves behind Terri his wife, Bindi their 8 year old daughter, Bob their 2 year old son and a legion of fans and admirers.

Please note that some people have made the mistake and thought Steve Urkel (Jaleel White from the TV show Family Matters) died. I will let you know he is fine and is currently a writer.
