Yea I was really suprised when I read that last night. You'd think he might've died some other way, sometihng more extravagent. Theres also some guy who goes around in austrailia in his barefeet, and wrestles aligators and other dangeroues stuffs. Dunno if hes well known though.
As crazy as this dude was around dangerous animals I can't say I'm too shocked. I did enjoy his show when I was younger, but he always made me little nervous when he was around venemous snakes and crap like that...I would have figured something like that would have been how he met his maker. The stingray tail whip is kind of a boring way to go for someone who took so many crazier chances.
This does not surprise me at all. You screw with that many dangerous animals as often as he does, something bad is bound to happen sooner or later. Obviously this is sooner than most people had anticipated. Don't get me wrong, the guy was funny, and did much for wildlife conservation, but I do kinda wish it was something cooler. Why couldn't a hippo have bit him in half or something? Oh well. later,
