    In killing minks, fox and chinchilla we do not push them to the brink of extinction in the same way as killing elephants, cheetahs and gorillas.

    I also met Steve, I was 10 at the time, and he was a really great guy. My Dad knew him well for awhile as his flight agency handled alot of Steve's Australian domestic flights. He will be dearly missed.

    Yes, I thought Ole Steve was certifiable at times. Yet he was gr8 company when I was recovering from a knee replacement surgery (3 _4 month recouperation period) several years ago.
    He even had a short bit about carnivorous plants on one of his episodes.
    I will miss him. I hope all the best to Terri anf the kids as they start their new life without him.

    I happened to see the news when it broke at 2 a.m. here on CNN. I was stunned. It was unbelievable.

    He was so full of joy and passion for animals and for getting information out to the public for conservation. You could see how much he enjoyed what he did. I feel terrible for his family...wife and kids in particular. By all accounts he was a great father.

    He was kinda nutty at times but you couldn't help but like the guy. He accomplished an awful lot for the animal world in his tragically shortened life.

    Godspeed to Steve on his new journey.

    Still having a tough time believing he is gone. My heart and prayers go out to his family. Steve made a big difference in the world.
