Link is to a tweet that contains a link to a news item. The tweet suggests the animal may have been the last of the species alive. If the species is now extinct because of this shooting (apparently in self defence), that is a pity. However, if this was indeed the last animal of its kind in existence and if this particular animal was not pregnant, then, essentially (i.e. at the end of this animal's life, whatever the circumstances of its death), the species was extinct already so all the shepherd's action in shooting it has done is bring the moment of its death forward, in which case he can hardly be blamed for the fact of this species' extinction.
In other words, I object to the underlying 'blame' that is present in the tweet.
