How long a sample would be tested positive ? Thylacine presence was not that far ago...

Unlike Bigfoot, Nessie, Chupacabra, etc. Thylacines were/are actually real. I hope we can find out they're still around, but I won't hold my breath...

Last definite evidence of a thylacine in the wild was betwen August the 3rd and 9th 1930.

A genetic science company in Australia has developed a way to detect the presence of thylacines out in the wild.

I wonder: would a bloodhound, or better, an American vulture (with the most impressive sense of smell) not do a better job?

Theres 80% chance of finding DNA after 30 days of presence, it decline probly faster with time passing, so false positive  is more or less impossible, nice.

A scent hound would find one if it's out there, or at least scat.Problem is you need fresh skin or scent to train a dog to run straight on a certain scent.

I'm afraid a genuine positive is even more so in my opinion.
