Steve Irwin

As is now well known, the famous Austrailian naturalist and explorer Steve Irwin was tragically killed by a stingray while filming for his TV series. Obviously this is a tragic loss for his family and fans alike – and he will no doubt be sorely missed.

However, the debate currently going on seems to be “should the tape be aired”.

I can’t beleive that anyone (outside of the marine science community, for whom there could be some interest in seeing how the ray defended itself) could be interested in viewing footage of a well known and respected man meeting a grisly end.

There is of course the consideration of the pain and misery that this video being “out there” will cause his wife and kids – ‘cos once something is broadcast, someone will record it and no doubt post it on the internet. The video will then never go away.

So here’s the question – would you want to see the tape, and if so, please explain why

The discussion and arguments are posted on the BBC News site

  1. Steve was kind of kooky but he did so much for the environment and animals. He poured all the millions he made into preserving the wildlife and the environment and I just think we should all pay our respects. He was not just a nationally recognised symbol but international. I just hope that his spirit lives on in many other Australians out there and we all chip in to save the environment form needless destruction.
    Peace out and long live the croc hunter.
