death of the "Grizzly Man", Timothy Treadwell ,was captured on the audio of his video camera, but was never released
Irwin's manager and close friend, John Stainton, had the painful experience of watching the videotape where Irwin pulls the stingray barb from his chest. He called it "shocking."
Stainton later said on CNN's "Larry King Live" that he would never want the tape shown publicly.
"I mean, it should be destroyed," Stainton told King on Tuesday evening. Noting the tape now is evidence in a coroner's inquest, Stainton said, "When that is finally released, it will never see the light of day. Ever. Ever. I actually saw it, but I don't want to see it again."

Or you could release it like Steve Irwin would of most likely had wanted. I would bet his family would agree.
His stated purpose for living was education and this film IMO is exactly that—educational. I'm sure alot of people would like to see why maybe this ray did this so that they may not find themselves in the same situation.
It's not like it will ever be shown on the Discovery channel. But the producers would be able to obtain a copy, watch it with assorted professionals and produce an educational program about sting-rays.

You feel the need to watch Steve Irwin die for educational purposes? Is our society so numb to death that we see on our nightly news that we would actually ask to watch an icon like Steve be stabbed in the chest? You think his wife, his young children would want the entire world to see how Steve was impaled by a stingray.. rip it out and die... honestly I hope this film is burned, that Steve gets the respect he and his family deserves and of course that Australia keeps his zoo open.
