Gojira1000 He spent his career jumping onto/handling/grabbing wildlife to appeal to the MTV generation - rather than to educate. One of the critters finally managed to kill him. He was a likable guy - but in the end a showman rather than a conservationist. He really doesn't need to be deified.
Feyd Yeah that didn't go over too well when I said it--that he was more of a daredevil than some kind of David Attenborough. If you harass dangerous animals for a living it is quite likely you are going to meet your end by one of those animals. Unlikely animal, though.
