I mean seriously, come on! Is there something in the drinking water down there? :rolleyes: Those few idiots who do these kinds of things... why?

I'd like to think it's NOT the Aussies who are doing it if, in fact, it's a man lead, revenge thing. That is certainly not honoring what Steve was about.

This is terrible.

Apart from the moral tragedy of mutilating these animals, it's incredibly stupid. Avenging the life of a man who cared about nature, by killing stingrays?

I never give Australians this much credit. There are a relatively high % of stupid Australians, present company excluded, of course.

This is terrible...I mean, Steve loved animals and surely would have hated it more for people to kill them than for him to be killed by one
