Today I heard the bad news that the croc hunter Steve Irwin has died. He was a great man and saved many animals that were sick and injured.
He was killed by a sting ray while filming a TV show on the Great Barrier Reef. The sting ray’s barb put a hole in his heart. Paramedic’s from Cairns were unable to save him.
I have allways watched The Crocodile Hunter and will miss seeing his shows. Steve Irwin also did a movie,The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, and another TV series called Croc Files. He was the Director of Australia Zoo in Queensland. Steve has a wife called Terri and a Daughter named Bindi Sue.

My thoughts go out to Steve Irwin’s family and freinds. He was a animal hero and will be missed.
