This makes me so sad! Back when we had cable, we LOVED his show on the Discovery Channel. I often joke that I could catch a crocodile myself - all you need is to get that top jaw rope on him and let him do his death roll, right? Then you can pick him right up! And snakes? Just grab 'em by the tail!
I feel like I've just found out that an old friend from high school died or something...I know that sounds corny, but, heck, one of my favorite shows that he did was the one where Bindi was born! You watch something like that and you feel like you know the people. I imagine a lot of people feel like they know him.
I feel so sad for his family.

It is very sad, I'm going to miss the crazy bugger! And such a hardship for his wife and children.

I take a little comfort in the fact that he went out doing what he loved best, at least, and wasn't just randomly hit by a car or something. When you tempt fate that many times, everyone has to be at least somewhat prepared for potential tragedy, but he will truly be missed.

I was so shocked to read the news this morning. I still am! We watch Croc. Hunter all the time- have all the videos. Even when we didn't have any kids (was pg. with #1), dh and I would watch it every night. So sad . I"m praying for his family.

Oh, how the kids are going to miss him! My 8yo has had an emotional attachment to him for years. Of course his 4yo sister joined right in!

I loved him so much. He sure did touch a lot of lives, both human and animal, in such a short time. He lead a truly meaningful life.

We watched his shows all the time! We will miss him greatly! I have the Zoo's address and we will be sending cards and artwork. I am still crying, and I am sure I will cry for a while to come. Even though I never met him, I feel really close to him. I didn't believe it at first, a friend told me about this. I heard rumors about his death a couple years ago, and it was false, so I didn't believe it this time. Then I heard it on the news. Our family is heartbroken right now.

If you want the address of the Zoo here it is:
Australia Zoo
Glasshouse Mountains Tourist Rte.
Beerwah, Queensland 4519

I feel so bad for his family, but it is ironic how he died. He was shooting a film to de-myth the stingray as a killer, it is so sad.
