Can't really understand you guys......he exploited "wildlife" just the same as SeaWorld, a Circus or Zoo.....no petition there....yet you praise him because he was a "TV" star???????? sound familiar.......but we all know that animals in the true wild only strike for two reasons......firstly for food......secondily for protection.........that Stingray wasn't hungry so the latter must of applied.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnSegu4A5Uc or was he just trying to dress it up as a furbaby.....?????? RIP Steve

Walked along the beach today.......saw a few stubbed stingrays.....must of been tribute to Steve....some people just don't know the difference between stingrays and mantarays.....have swum with stingrays.....no different to dolphins in many way.........just the same as some people can't tell the difference between Michael Jackson with his son on a balcony...but he was wacko.....but Steve wasn't http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2004/01/02/1072908908393.html a littlie ironic..that both are no longer alive but their sons are.......don't you think?

Thanks for sharing. I have to wonder 'though: did he educate or did he exploit? Probably some of both. A Star is an honor, I suppose, but something that honors and protect the animals he seemed so passionate about would seem more fitting. Maybe such memorials have been done. It just seems Stars on the Walk of Fame celebrates celebrities, and Irwin would have wanted to be taken more serious as an activist or animal protector. Just some thoughts.

Thank you for your comment Patrice.........yes a "Star is an Honour" as you said...... but Donald Trump also has a "Star"......on that very same "footpath".....Entertainers are rewarded it seems...
Not American....never have been there.......no desire to go there ever......

Congrats to the Irwin family - however, I personally Do Not believe that Steve was seeking stardom, he did what he loved and I very much appreciated him. Bindi has Always reminded me so much of her father, and it made Me happy to see their happiness.. Whatever one may believe, none the matter. He is sorely missed by yours truly. Thanks so much for sharing. Noted!
