I would think that line of work is more of an apprenticeship training kind of thing.

He was caring for animals since he was able to walk, since his father owned the zoo, and he decided to learn more so he could follow in his dad's footsteps. The best education, in this instance, is first hand experience.

exactly, and he would have been far more educated for it, than spending a few years in vets training and having a few letters after his name.

What, precisely, is "it" in this sentence?

"It" pertains to his career choice. I wholeheartedly agree, CosmoNut and Marc.

" Here to the crazy ones......" and Mr Jobs nor Mr Gates are "Trained proffesionals " so who cares ? Did he do good ? Did help change the world ? Did he bring joy and knowledge to a lot of children?
It is shame he has died. The end.

And again, what, precisely, was his career? Zoo owner? Croc wrangler? Snake handler? TV host?

To say it wasn't a game of odds because he survived it for 35 years is silly. He got killed. Yes, it was freak, but it caught up with him nonetheless.

I don't begrudge him what he was doing. Just saying, when you do dangerous stuff for 35 years, it's going to catch up with you. ESPECIALLY as you age and your reaction time decreases. It finally did with him, no matter how good he was at it.

My mechanic buddy learned by doing, but he doesnt run onto the highway with a camera crew and stop traffic and say "Cranky mate, theres a buick stoping right there; Lets go look under the hood!"

Agreed. This has become too cynical for my tastes. Time to close this thread.

He's gone. He defied categorization. His cheer, humor and enthusiasm will live on.

Please lock this thread. Rest in Peace, Mr. Irwin.
