Crocodile Tears

A forlorn goodbye to our very dear Steve...

Stephen Robert Irwin (22 February 1962 – 4 September 2006), nicknamed "The Crocodile Hunter", was an Australian conservationist and television personality. He achieved world-wide fame, from the television program The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally-broadcast wildlife documentary series co-hosted with his wife Terri Irwin. Together with his wife, he also co-owned and operated Australia Zoo in Beerwah, Queensland originally founded by his parents.

Irwin was snorkeling at Batt Reef when he was killed by a stingray barb that pierced his chest. Irwin was in the area to film pieces for a show called "The Ocean's Deadliest". But weather had prevented the crew from doing work for that program, so Irwin decided to do some softer features for a new children's TV show he was doing with his daughter, Bindi.

As the world mourns for him, I came across some cartoons that depicted what his death meant for animals, especially crocodiles.

May his soul Rest in Peace (R.I.P)...
