btw - has RynMan been around in the past day?
Yeah dude. Pretty awful. It's amazing how hard this has hit so many people down here. More so where I am - Steve's wildlife park "Australia Zoo" is like 40 mins drive from here, so the state is pretty saddened by the news as he is a local guy.
He put Australia and Queensland on the map, and was a big spokesman for wildlife protection. It's a big blow all around. I feel awful for his family.
He was the third person to ever die from a stingray attack in Australia....and something like the 17th in the world. That's just horrible luck. Some of the crazy stuff he did, man it's actually surprising he wasn't killed earlier!
I wonder if they will leave his picture on signs for Australia Zoo plastered all around this city..... I hope so.
I would imagine a street or two and a building may eventually be named in his honor as well. As it should be.
