Tabloid Whore!



Oh man, more sad news coming out about Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. It appears that his death was captured on video by the cameraman filming the documentary. John Stainton, Irwin's manager who was witness to everything said, "It shows that Steve came over the top of the ray and the tail came up, and spiked him here (in the chest), and he pulled it out and the next minute he's gone." Ugh, I feel so ill just thinking about the whole thing. I also heard Dorothy Lucy say this morning on Good Day L.A. that Steve's family reportedly wants the video to be made public because this was his life and who he was. Contact Music also reported, "The tapes are currently being held by Queensland police - but Irwin's family are determined to respect his last wishes and allow the harrowing footage to be broadcast. Irwin once insisted, "My number one rule is to keep that camera rolling. Even if it's shaky or slightly out of focus, I don't give a rip. "Even if a big old alligator is chewing me up I want to go down and go, 'Crikey!' just before I die. That would be the ultimate for me." One thing is for sure, when it does get out there, I don't think I will have the heart to watch it. Will you?

This is sick!! Just as sick as those horrible Faces of Death videos. Never would I watch this and for the wife to want this public is just bizarre. How could she watch this? Just think in 10 years when some station is showing it and the children turn it on and see their dad die. WTF? This is just a horrible decision in my opinion.

Hmmm, it would be one thing to see it if he lived, but...kinda scary, no? Is it legal to show someone dying on film? Isn't that a snuff film? Yeah, the kids stumbling across that would be tragic. Poor man, poor family. :(

Yes, it is legal. I think that his wife is respecting his wishes and his memory.

I won't watch it. He should be remembered for all the cool stuff he's done and taught us, he shouldn't be remembered for how he died.

God bless his family.

I don't know why, having experienced my own personal death/tragedy that this has me SO SAD.. but I think it's b/c he was so HAPPY , so FULL OF LIFE - so good and wholesome and loving. This sucks and it's just one of those things that you HOPE you figure out on the other side. I pray he knew Jesus.

The world lost a good person that many watched and looked up to. It would be difficult, but I'd watch it once. Only to see the reality of it. It's so hard to believe this happened to Steve Irwin the world famous Crocodile Hunter. We will miss him!

Does anyone know how his wife is doing? And how is his daughter Sue doing? She is 8 and was with him when he died. I am worried for his family.

The sad part is how amazingly desensitized the world has become and would even want to be apart of death by watching his. He deserves more respect than that. If it were to be a learning tool, it would still be wrong. We have the ability to animate even with out depicting Steves untimely death.

This is a tragedy in deed, but if it was his dying wish to show the video, then people should respect it. Im not telling you people to watch it (especialy for some sick fanasy of a man dying), but im telling people understand and try watching a show that educates people about animals, how Steve would have wanted.

i heard on the radio with an emphatic NO that he did not pull out the barb. in fact, being the educated man he is he would know you are not supposed to pull objects lodged into your body because that can cause more damage to the surrounding tissue and organs, and cause more bleeding. i don't believe he pulled it out. he would have had time to. i think he died right away . :(

What happened to Steve just breaks my heart. I am a fan of his and I can’t believe he is gone. To Terri, Bindi, Bob and the rest of Steve’s family, I pray for you all and will continue to do so. Steve made such a positive impact on the world and he will be greatly missed.

i believe it would be only honoring steve's memory if the video was shown. his life goal was to show us how beautiful the worlds animals are, and the raw power these animals posses. in this case he got too close, n he will be missed. i say honor the man for he couragous acts. death is just another turning point in life. deal with it
you will be missed steve we love you n you will always be in our hearts.

i think the footage should be shown. it is only right. it was his demand that the cameras will stay rolling even if he is being chewed on by an allagator. it is not some sort of sick and twisted dream that i just want to see this footage. i have seen all his shows, and i would love to see the last one. i mean he had no idea that the stingray was going to stick him. he had originally intended for the footage to be shown. and for those people who think that it is sick and twisted and perverted to show and whatch the footage, no its not. people like me loved what he did. every day he rilked his life just to enertain, inspire, and educate everyone in the world. this is his dying video and it should be made public. many people would want to see this video. some out of curiosity, some because they loved him, and some because they loved what he did. they have footage of people being shot, stabbed, strangled, and dying from a horrible and sick tragedy. and now just because he is famous and inspired an extreme amount of people, they r thinking of completely destroying the video. tht is bullcrap. so, it is not sick and twisted, or even wrong to see or show this video. thank u.

i would love to see the last video! fuck, he was an idiot, you have to admit that, teasing and stressing animals just to get good ratings, that wasnt right at all
and many experts said that he stressed the animal to the point where they became aggressive
and that was just to say" jeez, this crocodile is cranky!" omfg what would YOU do if someone is fucking pulling your tail and grabbing your ass!
get away from my personal space, motherfucker!

In an Australian interview with Terri Irwin last week, she said she hopes the video will never be shown & she cannot see how it could be beneficial (the moment of his death)to view it. She herself has not watched it & Bindi (Steve's daughter)was not with him, she was with Terri in Tasmania. She is a phenomenal woman who I beleive will carry on Steve's dream to protect wildlife & educate the world. RIP Steve.
