Best Answer

The Tasmanian Tiger (more correctly known as the Thylacine) was hunted to extinction because farmers were concerned about the threat to their livestock. The last one died in the Hobart Zoo because the needs of this animal were not understood, and they were not given sufficient shelter for the cold climate.

Humans had everything to do with the extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger (more correctly known as the Thylacine). It extinction essentially resulted after a bounty was put on it, for fear it would kill stock animals. This gave anyone a licence to kill these creatures.
