They are extinct so nobody will meet them. Thanks, humans.
Humans are destructive jackasses. There is there’s not another way to put it. We evolved and then totally destroyed everything we have ever been given. We took the beautiful and turned it into the extinct. We destroy everything we touch.
We ruin everything. For example, why make a Grease 2? You don’t always have to piggyback on the success of something. Don’t get me started on the Fast and The Furious serious.
We have ruined more than landscapes, and movies. I would like to play homage to some of the extinct species that we caused or partly caused to go away forever.
The Reunion Ibis bird was extinct by the early 18th century due to human hunting and predatory animals being introduced to the area along with other animals that would compete for food in the Ibis’ habitat. Similar to the dodo bird. It probably hosted huge family reunions every summer across the country and they had matching shirts. Rest in peace, young reunion bird.
The Labrador Duck — extinct due to human competition for mussels and other shellfish. I imagine this duck retrieving tennis balls and slobbering like hell. I am sorry to not have met you, Labrador Duck. We would have played fetch for hours.
The Tasmanian wolf went extinct in 1936 for multiple reasons. We hunted them and we destroyed their habitat.
I imagine this animal to look like a majestic wolf. But with a personality disorder causing him to be spastic like the Tasmanian devil.
The Atlas Wild Ass — much like a donkey, it became extinct due to Roman sport hunting. Obviously, I imagine this animal to be a donkey with an atlas on it instead of stripes. And he has an attitude problem.
The Californian Grizzly — I have never met a bear, but if I had to choose want to meet it would be this one. This bear would be way too chill to kill you. He would probably be high and he probably would fight the forest fires alongside the firemen.
This species died due to hunting. Imagine that.
Rest in peace. Don’t worry. We are destroying our own habitat, too. Karma is making her way to us.
