So would it not make sense to clone species which humans are responsible for destroying?
Yeah I know about that, but they did call their friends and got them all killed. That speeded up the process and if they did that with humans they would have done that with other animals too so it makes no difference. Also, they were hunted by us for food because that is how we had to survive, there were no grocery stores and whatever so it is just survival of the fittest. However the black rhino that went extinct because of poachers that wanted their horns for jewellery, or the whales that are being killed because the Japanese fancy a whale sandwich is a completely different story. Those are luxuries, not survival instinct.
