Some people say he was a 'victim' of 'animal voyeurism' tv.
What kind of spin is that?
Steve Irwin was a great guy - most of his money went to funding conservation efforts and a wildlife rehabilitation center. He loved animals and was a tremendous conservationist.
He was not some new fangled whim of pop culture - he WAS a terrific conservationist and educator, and this family admired him very much.
We are saddened that he is dead.
Perhaps my husband put it best (although rather coarsely)when he said:
"If Tony Blair or Bush died, I'd not give a shit, but Steve Irwin was one of the GOOD GUYS and this just blows."
