I cried like a baby when i heard the news of his death. He didn't hide from anything. He was tough and compassionate, two qualities that define a good man. His was a voice that will truly be missed. He traveled around the world and showed people the value of having compassion for animals. like so many others, i am wounded by his loss.

This is an excerpt from an article in the Times that i thought was a very fitting tribute:

When asked how he would respond to those who don't like the way he treated animals, Irwin had a ready defense.

"Here we are in the year 2003 and people are wondering whether i am bothering the chameleons or bothering a crocodile," he told the Times. "Isn't that fantastic? Ten years ago, mate, people would go, "that's just a slimy, stinky reptile, haven't we changed?"
