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.

They wouldn't run: they would turn on each other and fight.

Well, then, that settles it.

We breed them for fighting.

We have a stuffed Tasmanian Tiger at our museum here in Adelaide, South Australia. They look like Dingos with stripes.

The team have actually returned, I'll check the CFZ website and bump this in a few days.
I suspect it's findings of the anectdotal variety, as was always going to be the case on a short expedition like this.

Oh, I've found a link...

Freeman suspected it was there beforehand and now is convinced it's there. Who knows, it could be, I suppose it's a case of whether you believe the people who are telling you that they've seen it

All they found was big pieces of poop and stories. Sad but that's how I assumed it would go.

The poop tests are a long shot... Can someone update if the results are released?

The mystery of the Tasmanian tiger remains after an expedition failed to catch a glimpse of the elusive animal thought to have become extinct 80 years ago.

The UK-based Centre of Fortean Zoology is dedicated to tracking mythical, mystery and extinct animals around the world.

Nine members have just wound up the first stage of their latest self-funded project: hunting the thylacine.

Witness accounts in this kind of topics have almost no value. Until they can prove there is talacyne DNA on those faeces there is nothing to defend their claim.

At first glance, I thought the thread title said "Naturists hunt..."

I'll admit, I was a little disappointed by the link.

Tasmania remains pretty untouched to my memory, forest wise. It's pretty likely there's some animals hiding deep in the forests.

Its a remote possibility, but even so, in NZ we have plenty of Kiwi species and though they are endangered and our national icon, the only place most people including New Zealanders ever get to see one is in a zoo as they are shy elusive and nocturnal creatures like has been described of the Tasmanian tiger.


I think people from many countries could say that. I've never seen a wild koala, wombat, wallaby, platypus, echidna, dingo, tassie devil or pretty much any Australian icon. Kangaroos would have to be the only native animal I would see and even that's rare nowadays. Been months since I've seen a kangaroo, been years since I've seen one up close.

Wildlife, especially species that are hunted, do tend to stay away from people. I live in North America and have only ever seen two wild black bear, and they were terrified of the encounter, so much so I "bearly" got a good look, I basically saw the rump of one as it dove over an embankment. I have seen one bobcat up close and another possible sighting along a highway and they are common, but rather secretive. I suspect there are large areas of Tasmania that people don't frequent, just like there are large areas of N.A. that rarely get visitors. Doesn't mean the Thylacine still lives or that Bigfoot exists, but for the tiger, it does offer some hope that the remoteness of the place and the density of the bush might yet hide a few.
