How did the great auk go extinct?

There used to be millions of these birds in Canada, in France, and even in Florida. But that was before humans got involved...

    Keep hunting the animal. This will make animal end up and never exits it

    The birds are extinct. What is the point of telling this story other than making money out of it.

    Humans, most of the times, are monsters in the eyes of other creatures.

    the Inuit used to call these penguin, and the discovery of these in the deep south caused them to get the name.

    Humans are worst predictors of all! And stupid as a tree stamp! Pretending to be a God who can “improve NATURE”! Idiots!

    ...I'm just fed up with the constant blaming our ancestors get for making creatures extinct... Enough already. Everyone knows about these extinct creatures and what led them there... People were stupid and uncaring back then (well still are) but now we have people today who will fight and do anything to save species on the brink or are endangered and help their numbers rise. Why can't titles be changed to "Corrupt humans" instead of "Humans" on the whole, blaming the entire race for the crap corrupt people did

    We constantly talk about how humans led to the extinct of an animal. Eventually, the future AIs will talk about how humans led to the extinct of the planet Earth, starting with the plastic pollution within us
