Suddenly, all the people in the world care about “endangered species”, even when they would happily kill animals for entertainment otherwise*. Screw this! What does it matter if a species is “endangered” or not? If it’s ok to kill animals, it’s ok to kill them. Why are whales better than cows? Because there are less of them?
So I say — screw this. Kill off the endangered species. At least that way, that species will have its suffering over, and people will no longer be able to enjoy whale meat or whatever. The endangered problem takes care of itself. The problem of slaughter of farm animals does not.
* Killing animals for food is the same as killing them for entertainment, usually. Vegetarians enjoy the same life expectancy as non-vegetarians, so the only excuse is “they taste good”, which translates to “I want to have fun by killing animals”.
