Steve Irwin, never a real "hunter"
May "The Crocodile Hunter" of Australia rest in peace and may his spirit live on in all of us who love animals. Steve Irwin's show was one of the rare ones i used to watch on occasion when i watched TV.
He was a caring, compassionate, funny, energetic activist, and as far as i was always able to tell, a true friend to animals.
From Wikipedia entry:
Irwin was as enthusiastic about his family as he was about his work. He once described his daughter Bindi as "the reason he was put on the Earth." His wife Terri once said, "The only thing that could ever keep him away from the animals he loves are the people he loves even more."
My heart hurts knowing a caring individual who did so much to share his knowledge of and passion for animals with the public has passed away from this Earthly realm. I am sad today.
