regarding the Tasmanian Tiger;
Its extinction is popularly attributed to these relentless efforts by farmers and bounty hunters. However, it is likely that multiple factors led to its decline and eventual extinction, including competition with wild dogs (introduced by settlers), erosion of habitat, the concurrent extinction of prey species, and a distemper-like disease that also affected many captive specimens at the time.
Trust me on this one... If the other multiple factors had not come into play, the extinction would still have occurred due to the relentless hunting of these animals. Assuming there are indeed extinct that is.
