Why did dinosaurs go extinct?

There are various reasons why dinosaurs (and other animals) became extinct.  One theory is that dinosaurs may have terrorized people and eaten their cattle or other farm-raised animals, so people hunted them to extinction.  Another theory is that they ran out of food and began to kill each other.  Still another theory is that the climate affected their survival.  There are several other reasons why animals become extinct.  Maybe the endangered species program should have started earlier?
