In a world of Croc

Crocodile hunter Steve slammed over baby stunt

Crocodile hunter Steve Irwin may face a police investigation for holding his month old baby son a few feet away from the mouth of a crocodile at his Queensland zoo.

During a packed show at Irwin's Australian Zoo reptile park Irwin held his new son Bob in one arm while using his other to dangle a dead chicken in front of a 13 feet crocodile.

"He's one-month-old, so it's about time Bob got out there and did his first croc demo," the Aussie celebrity famed for his TV shows told the excited crowd with his trademark enthusiasm.

But critics branded Steve reckless.

Australian Family Association spokesman, Bill Muehlenberg said his conduct was tantamount to child abuse.

Queensland Police confirmed that they received complaints from the public about the incident.

Steve - who was recently named Queenslander of the year - defended the stunt, saying the baby was never in danger.

Steve's wife, Terri, looked on as Steve walked Bob to the crocodile pool at the Sunshine Coast wildlife park.

In an interview with an Australian newspaper, Steve defended his behaviour, saying: "This kid has to grow up to be croc savvy.

"I guess what I am doing is teaching him to be completely familiar with crocodiles. There's no way known I would ever endanger my child."


I like the Croc hunter...but no way do you take a baby around a 13 foot crocodile....I don't care how experience you are...that is just stupid....a kid can wait a little longer than 1 month to learn about crocs..... :-P

Yeah, I wouldn't have done that either. :-/ Wild animals are a little too unpredictable for me. Ziegfreid (sp?) and Roy anyone?

No matter how innocuous crocs and alligators may be in general, there's no predicting the unpredictable. Stupid, stupid stunt. :-t

Oh yes, I saw clips. The innocuous bit was in reference to their "general" behavior, as I've been told. Not behavior that's incited by Jackass-style antics.

yeap it sounds familar but if it was jacko he would of did something to the little boy ahhhhhhhhh. Anyway the croc man made a horrible mistake and should never do a stupid stunt like this again and on tv when he was defending himself he said he was trying to teach his child about crocs now that to me sounds very stupid and he said he would do it again. :-P :-t :-t
