"Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin won't face charges over an incident in which he held his infant son in one arm as he fed a crocodile from his other hand. The televised incident drew a storm of criticism from viewers.
Family and children's groups called Irwin irresponsible and reckless, and a rival croc farm owner said, "I think he's a bloody idiot." Australian workplace rules prohibit unauthorized people from entering a public crocodile enclosure.
"I was in complete control of the crocodile. Robert was tucked right in my arm," Irwin said. Some compared his action to Michael Jackson's stunt in which he dangled his baby over a balcony in 2002.
