I know there has been alot of words swarming the internet about Steve Irwin since his uncanny death. My intentions were not to over-do that in any way, but I have to mention this.
The Croc Hunter took risks every day doing what he loved, making those shows and dealing with wildlife. He knew he would eventually buy the entire farm. Animals only react for survival's sake, and cannot speak for themselves or otherwise defend themselves. It's humans you have to watch out for!
