Thylacines warning sign erected in Australia

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Despite the last confirmed sighting of the now-extinct thylacine being nearly 90 years ago, there is a small group of Australians adamant it lives on across the nation.

One of the more notorious hotspots for thylacine sightings aside from Tasmania is in the South West region of Western Australia – which has led to the emergence of the elusive Nannup tiger.

And while there is no hard evidence that suggests it still actually exists, numerous ‘sightings’ have left some locals elevating the Nannup tiger among the most elite of folklore creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster.

Such a reputation has led to the recent erection of an unofficial traffic warning sign normally reserved for non-extinct native wildlife such as kangaroos or possums.

Pity they didn't put up No Hunting signs with a pic of the tiger on them 100 years ago.

It wouldnt be too shabby if they actually found one in the wild. It would be a valuable find for cryptozoology.

And if we still have thylacines in the wild, some were recently wiped out by fire. :(

Some if not all! I have been watching the Australian fires with dismay, several hundred butterfly species have been eradicated probably for good. Of course, that is a drop in the ocean of the total amount of animals and plants that have been wiped out. Without a single doubt there will have been thousands of unique species rendered extinct by the fires.

What are they doing about all the arsonists they say have been charged, Aussie Friends? Nothing more in the news out here. Are they using it to make a serious media impact against flicking cig butts out car windows and burning during dry season at least?

I think there were only a handful of fruitcakes that deliberately started fires to causes havoc,most were lightening strikes.I heard of one guy that back burned to protect his dope crop and a hillbilly around my way decided it would be a good idea to burn his old tyres.They have a "dob in a butt thrower" number,it's a bit hard to police in remote Oz.

All the delicate,beautiful creatures will be the first to go with the climate changing,drought,fires,floods.Humans,the ugliest most brutal creatures here may be the last,we deserve to suffer for what we have done to the planet.
