You could excuse them if they didn't realise how rare this species is, but if people were bothering to photograph it you'd think they'd realise they'd found something special.

Reminds me of the last supper of Franky Mitterand. Douches weren't the only thing this fat bastard gobbled.

But how much did they sell it for? Surely, if it's an extinct species you can charge a bit extra..

There is a bit of a paradox here. If you are selling an example of the species, it is not yet extinct. The last bird doesn't acquire additional value until it is gone, or at least dead.

One should not be too casual about calling a species extinct, remember the Coelacanth.

But imagine the power in your hands, to actually make a species extinct. Then eating it. Breaking the neck of the last in a lineage that stretches back through time, then turning into fly food.

Think I'll fry up a pan of snail darters for lunch.

Well, technically, if you have the last one, all you're doing is accelerating the extinction by a few years. Now if you had the last living male and female of a species...

Then forced them to have sex, and ate their offspring while they died of old age...

That would be just like an evil atheist to do something like that.

Anything to promote the lie of evolution.
