Martha Died 100 Years Ago This Year,

but there is a lot of talk about using modern scientific methods to bring back extinct species like the passenger pigeon. Thanks to human stupidity, especially in the establishment of commercial hunting of these birds and tearing down their habitat, the species rapidly died out. It once numbered in the billions of birds, but as these idiots killed them off during the latter part of the 19th century, the species could not survive.I have doubts the bird can ever be replicated because it required huge numbers of birds to sustain its population. . . .
