The Great Auk was a large flightless bird that lived on remote islands across the North Atlantic. In 1844, a group of Scottish fishermen captured the last Great Auk in the British Isles. They kept the bird tied up for three days until an ominous storm arose. Believing the bird was a witch responsible for their predicament, the men clubbed it to death.

The Last of Us – bittersweet series of true tales about how various species went extinct. Complement with Jon Mooallem’s Wild Ones, which looks at this very process taking place as we speak.
