I agree with Germaine Greer. I am sorry a man died and am especially sorry for his wife and children. It is a pity he didn't consider them more. However He was an embarrassment. He abused animals and he was an example of the worst in the Australian character. This country gives state funerals to Irwin and Packer but hardly notices the death on the same day of a wonderful children's author like Colin Thiele.
