Crikey…. September 4, 2006

Posted by Mick in Diary.

“A bloody good bloke” is how Steve Irwin has been described, and even though I’ve never met the guy he always seemed very genuinely nice and a decent all-round guy.

Very sad day for Australians and for animal conservationists as a whole. He has done a lot around the world for animals and I am not impressed with comments from people, saying that he ‘asked for it’ by poking and prodding animals all these years. In my view he’s always had the animals best interests at heart and the fact that he made a living out of displaying animals in close proximity with humans should not lessen the tragedy or his legacy.

Lots of coverage about it here in the States, which is fair enough seeing as though he broke it big here before he did in Australia anyway.

Sad day indeed.
