Steve Irwin, Killed by a Stingray

As everyone knows by now, the "Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin, has been killed by a stingray barb through the heart while taping a television program. This was truly a freak accident, as very rarely are stingrays fatal to humans. Not much I can say about this great conservationist and naturalist, other than he was able to bring his love of animals to the public via his television shows, acquainting his viewers with some of the others with which we share this planet. He will be missed by many, myself included.
