Top 3 Animals Hunted to Extinction Hunting has been going on since the beginning of time but sadly, due to poaching and greed, this means that many animals are now extinct. They were often hunted because of the large amounts of money paid for their fur, horns and tusks. Below are three animals that have been hunted to extinction.
The West African Black Rhinoceros which stood out because of it’s extremely sharp and large horn. This huge animal was hunted into extinction by poachers who were making huge amounts money as the horn of the rhino apparently had certain “health benefits”.
The beautiful Zanzibar Leopard which only came from a certain part of Tanzania, became extinct due to the local native populations beliefs and superstitions. It was thought that the Leopard was a relative of witches so they were wiped out to ensure they did not scare the locals.
The sub-tropical Caribbean Monk Seal were found in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. These seals were hunted into extinction by whalers and fishermen due to the demand for their fur, oil and meat. According to reports this is the only seal species to go extinct because of humans.
Unfortunately these are only a few animals of the many that have become extinct due to over hunting and there are many more species of animals all over the world today are currently threatened or endangered due to overhunting.
