Tibbles the lighthouse keepers cat killed the last of an entire bird species

In 1894, a cat named Tibbles killed all the wrens on Stephens Island, New Zealand. Unfortunately, they were the last of their species, Xenicus lyalli.

That makes Tibbles the only individual in recorded history to wipe out an entire species singlehanded.
