I'm sure there was a thread on this, but anyhow, in today's paper it was pleasing to read that Steve Irwin (known as the crocodile hunter) has successfully lobbied the Federal Govt to halt the croc safaris in the Northern Territory.

The Territory Environment Minister, Marion Scrymgour is pretty mad about Irwin's success as she was looking fwd to an economic boost to aboriginal communities and pastoralists. What some people would do for a buck, eh?

It's hard to know what to think of our Steve. On one hand he funds a lot of wildlife work and on the other hand he keeps exotic animals captive for public amusement.

At least he doesn't amuse the public by organising hunts of animals, exotic or native! :)
