Finale Episode

Don’t try this at home. I’m a professional TV personality.

Alas, the Crocodile Hunter has joined the Grizzly Man.

BRISBANE, Australia - Steve Irwin, the hugely
popular Australian television personality and
environmentalist known as the "Crocodile
Hunter," was killed Monday by a stingray during
a diving expedition, police said. He was 44.

Irwin was filming an underwater documentary
on the Great Barrier Reef in northeastern
Queensland state when the accident occurred,
Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper
reported on its Web site.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. said Irwin
was diving near Low Isles Reef near the resort
town of Port Douglas, about 1,260 miles north
of the state capital of Brisbane.
