There have been many species that have been hunted to extinction. Many large mammals such as wolly mammoths were hunted to extinction in Paleolithic times. Many other large mammals were hunted to extinction in Europe during the early middle ages. These included spectacular animals such as the Irish Elk and Auroch.
