Stingray mutilations prompt Irwin vengeance fears
Story"When a stingray killed the flamboyant naturalist Steve Irwin last week, his fellow Australian Germaine Greer outraged many by writing: "The animal world has finally taken its revenge." Now, it seems, the human world is hitting back. "Up to 11 stingrays have been found dead and mutilated on Australia's eastern coast since the Crocodile Hunter's death, prompting fears that Irwin's fans are exacting their revenge on the normally docile fish."
If that's the case, wow, people are fucking retarded.
Of all people to "exact revenge" for, Steve Irwin is not one of them. He understands, as I would hope most people understand, that once you go in the ocean, you're its inhabitants' guest. If you get your arm taken off by a shark, don't get mad at the shark; you knew it could happen and, if that's unacceptable to you, then you should've stayed out of the ocean in the first place. Now, granted, I
don't stay out of the ocean, but if I'm ever eaten by a hungry shark, slowly and limb by limb, I won't hold a grudge. I'm sure Steve wouldn't have, either. In fact, I'm pretty sure Steve would probably head-butt someone for hurting a stingray.
