Steve Irwin’s Afterlife Is a Source of Rumours

Almost three years after Steve Irwin was killed by a Stingray in Batt Reef, off the coast of Queensland in Australia, rumors are still circulating about what happened to Steve Irwin after his death.

Steve Irwin Wrestles a Crocodile

Steve Irwin Fed to a Crocodile?

Allegedly, at Steve Irwin’s funeral, his body was fed to a crocodile, although his wife Terri has stood up against these rumors saying they are not true at all and she finds them offensive.

Steve Irwin Killed by Stingray

Steve Irwin was killed while scuba diving by a stingray he was playing with.  As the ray circled his body, the barb got stuck in his body and he was killed.  There is actually a video of his Stingray encounter here:

Remembering Steve Irwin

September 2009 will mark the three-year anniversary of Steve Irwin’s death.  It is a good time to look back on his amazing life and the contribution he made to our society and our knowledge and understanding of the animals around us.  RIP Steve Irwin.
