Like you, I was saddened by the death of Steve Irwin.
What I really enjoyed about the guy was his passion and his ability to stare death in the eye and not blink. This is what he translated on camera which, won over many fans.
Since his death, there have been moving tributes and even a little humour; some tasteful and some, not so tasteful (I'm looking at you Matt Striker). However, what is interesting is how some fans are grieving.
According to the article above, people are actually hunting down stingrays. In the last few days, there have been groups popping up on Facebook such as "I'm hunting down the stingray that killed Steve Irwin." But, I never thought people would actually seek vengeance against the ocean creature.
Kind of makes you wonder; can vengeance in some cases, be a pathway to closure?
