This just in:
There is a rumour that Steve "The Crocodile Hunter" Irwin has met his maker.
Update to follow
Update: It's now on The Age website which lends a little credibility to the rumour. It sounds like he got a stingray's barb through his chest.
I guess he was always going to go out doing something a bit different. I can't see him being satisfied with a simple car crash, or falling down some stairs.
He was definitely a character, I'll give him that.
