that is the case.
The case is, also, that the government has a habit of ignoring it - given that they've just allowed some excavation of the GREAT BARRIER REEF so coal ships can move through it, that's all you need to know about the parade of shitwits that are in power ATM.

Worth pointing out that with all our bleating about protecting whales, we still keep Dolphins in captivity, when New Zealand outlawed it.


WSPA’s New Zealand Country Manager, Bridget Vercoe, says this is fantastic news for dolphins both here and overseas. Many countries around the world already have legislation prohibiting the taking, holding, importing and exporting of dolphins. Adding New Zealand’s name to this growing list will help strengthen public and government opposition worldwide to this cruel practice.

The bloody Kiwis did it first, that's not right.

I reckon you are on the money, we would more likely see a "chase the tiger" reality show or some such rubbish.

We should capture and breed them for racing.

It's obvious that one of those things would give a greyhound a run for its money, what with the racing stripes and all.

But assuming it did survive in the wild past the 1930s, there is another potential threat that may have finished it off: Tasmanian Devils have been plagued with a contagious cancer that spreads from animal to animal during fights or scavenging on carcasses and it is decimating the population, causing huge facial tumors. If Thylacine also scavenge the same carcasses, then it possible the disease might have spread to them as well, assuming it can infect multiple species.

I am of the belief that it defiantly lived past the extinction date, but for how long would be anyone guess. David Fleay, Wildlife conservations trapped one as late as the mid 50's but it escaped the trap leaving only fur and paw marks, which he could readily identify as Thylacine.

Here are some excellent informative links:


This one very much fact orientated

And this one, which also retells myths and legends.

The super 8 footage on youtube taken in the 70's with an alleged thylacine loping across a road looks pretty good...not sure if thats ever been debunked??

If it is the Queensland footage, then yes, I believe so.

There are also reports of a remnant population in Papua-New Guinea, which seems like a real possibility.
