In the ridiculously misplaced grief department, The Guardian UK Online reports that Australian officials suspect upset fans of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin of mutilating stingrays.
Eight days after the documentary maker was killed in a freak encounter with a stingray while snorkelling off the north Queensland coast, and while his native Australians continue to mourn him, the authorities are investigating the possibility that the species that took Irwin's life is being targeted in acts of retribution.
Up to 10 apparently mutilated stingrays have washed up in coastal waters since his death, prompting Queensland state officials to call on fans of the self-styled "wildlife warrior Australian bloke" not to retaliate against the species that killed their hero.
Can't we all just get along???
