Stingrays: Assassins of the Sea

I'm sure you, like all of us, assumed the unfortunate stingray stabbing death of conservationist and TV star, Steve Irwin was just a freak accident. Well, maybe we shouldn't be so sure.

An 81-year-old boater was in critical condition Thursday after a stingray flopped onto his boat and stung him, leaving a foot-long barb in his chest, authorities said.

Whoa... Hold on a sec... The stingray jumped into the boat and stabbed the dude in the chest? And we're calling this a freak accident, too?

I just don't know about that, my friend...
