    One month after Yakima County Sheriff Ken Irwin posted a message on his department’s website explaining that he would uphold both the state and federal constitutional provisions on the right to keep and bear arms, his statement is suddenly catching fire on the internet. Irwin, who has been sheriff of the large central-Washington county – which stretches from the Columbia River sagebrush in its northeast corner to the Cascade Crest – posted the note back on Dec. 22. But it was apparently not until this week that gun rights activists became aware of it, thanks to a story on KAPP...

    The father of late television star Steve Irwin said he quit the family's Australian conservation park because he had become a "disrupting influence," although the widow of the khaki-clad "Crocodile Hunter" denies a rift in the clan. Australian media have speculated for months that Terri Irwin, the U.S.-born wife of the television host and mother of his two children, had fallen out with Bob Irwin following his son's death in a 2006 stingray attack. In brief excerpts released Thursday of Bob Irwin's first interview since he left the park earlier this year, he told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. he "was...

    An Australian fisherman has survived being stabbed in the chest by a stingray, the marine creature that killed Aussie crocodile hunter Steve Irwin two months ago, police said. The fisherman was on board a prawn trawler off the coast of South Australia when the usually-placid creature on Wednesday plunged one of its razor-sharp tail barbs into the man's chest. Police said the barb did not lodge in the fisherman's chest or cause any respiratory problems and he was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. Stingrays are frequently caught up in fishermen's nets and have been known...

    A NURSE who tried to resuscitate Steve Irwin says the Crocodile Hunter had virtually no hope of surviving the stingray attack that killed him. Nurse Enid Traill said she and paramedics were shocked to learn the man they had been trying to save on the Great Barrier Reef was "the" Steve Irwin. And in an uncanny coincidence, Mrs Traill said she knew the celebrity conservationist when he was a teenager – more than 1000km north of the Sunshine Coast where Mr Irwin grew up – but hadn't recognised him. A stingray's barb pierced Mr Irwin's chest at 11.18am (AEST) at...

Many of us will now spend eternity with him. I am sure Terri is comforted as a Christian in the...

    SYDNEY, Australia (AP)—At least 10 stingrays have been killed since “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin was fatally injured by one of the fish, an official said Tuesday, prompting a spokesman for the late TV star's animal charity to urge people not take revenge on the animals. Irwin died last week after a stingray barb pierced his chest as he recorded a show off the Great Barrier Reef. Stingray bodies since have been discovered on two beaches in Queensland state on Australia's eastern coast. Two were discovered Tuesday with their tails lopped off, state fisheries department official Wayne Sumpton said.

    ON the afternoon before his final adventure, Steve Irwin sat on the aft deck of Deepstar, an aluminium catamaran moored at Batt Reef off Port Douglas, and looked wide-eyed at his host Pete West's newest purchase. It was a modern-day suit of armour. A head-to-toe stainless steel mesh outfit, complete with full-face helmet. The creation of a San Diego-based company specialising in marine equipment, it had been custom-made to protect its wearer from all but the most determined sea creatures. Even tiger sharks - known to devour stingrays, serrated barb and all - would have found the sections of steel...

    As the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin made a name for himself around the world. But at the end of the day, he was just an "ordinary bloke." In the first public remarks from Irwin's family since his death on Monday, his father, Bob Irwin, said the family would probably decline the Australian government's offer of a state funeral for his son, because Irwin would not have wanted the fuss of such a formal proceeding. "The state funeral would be refused, because he's an ordinary guy, he's just an ordinary bloke," the elder Irwin said at a press conference at Australia...

Not every single thread about Steve Irwin on FR has to include the incident of him holding his son in the croc enclosure, a mention of Darwin, and/or the word "Fool" Sometimes the old saying is true "If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all."

Irwin was the real Crocodile Dundee, a great Australian, an ambassador for wildlife, a global phenomenon, a superhuman generator of merchandise, books, interactive video games and action figures. The only creatures he could not dominate were parrots. A parrot once did its best to rip his nose off his face. Parrots are a lot smarter than crocodiles. What seems to have happened on Batt Reef is that Irwin and a cameraman went off in...
