LATEST: The footage of late Australian naturalist STEVE IRWIN being killed by a stingray could be shown on TV. Charismatic Irwin, dubbed the Crocodile Hunter after his internationally acclaimed TV show, died yesterday (04SEP06) while diving on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Irwin was filming for a new documentary when he lost his life, and his cameraman shot the moment when the stingray's barbed tail stabbed the legendary conservationist through the heart. 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." An insider tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "This is exactly what Steve would have wanted. He knew the dangers and was totally up for the cameras to get everything."

I'll watch it.

 

Not saying its right but I cant help but watch stuff like that.

 

 

Like that decapitation that that those sicko terrorists released (I believe the victim's name was Nick Berg). I watched it like 20 times and had nightmares.

 

Then I watched it again the next day.

I was watching Animal Planet today. They had a few of his shows on, it was nice. I'll really miss the guy.

 

And I think it's absolutely fine to show him in his final shot. Dude knew what he was getting himself into, but had that no-holds-bar mentality. Nothing is off limits with him, and neither should this footage.

 

It's not like we watch him gargle his last words and die in his children's arms.

Most people watching crocodile hunter were waiting for the moment anyways. I know when I first saw his crazy ass I thought "Only a matter of time before he gets eaten, I hope they show it". Kinda sucks it had to be a sting ray...but I'm definitely going to watch. Irwin was definitely the man, I loved his bits with snakes...in one he gets bit and freaks out because he didn't really remember if that particular snake was venomous.
