#TBT: The tragic death of the Tasmanian tigers

He was the last surviving Tasmanian tiger. But at the time, no one suspected that his death could bring a whole species to extinction. That was back in 1936. #TBT

    They are pack animals keep each other warm in dens. Ben was prob not fed enough either. Hence cold and starving prob killed him. And wouldn’t rule out loneliness Well done mankind

    I don't know how most of you think sometimes. wild animals should be killed because they threaten human life. If they're done killing a human you'll know how stupid you've been to have let them live. I don't care if wild animals go extinct. Domestic animals should be well preserved not the wild

    Because of negligence. But cloning has come a long way since then.

    Sadly, humans seem destined to never quite comprehend or appreciate the importance and necessity of every species to the natural environment.

    They are not extinct. They are hiding in deep thick forest.
