news icon rA tasmanian tiger or thylacine ran across a road north of Colac about 12.50am last Monday, according to Warrion man Steven Bennett. Mr Bennett said he was driving between Cressy and Warrion when he spotted the animal, believed to have been extinct since 1936.

"It ran across the road in front of me (and) paused before it went into the bushes and long grass (on the side of the road),'' he said.

I can see a real possibility of this animal to have survived the extinction.

After all, it was only what? 100 years ago when the last was seen in the mainland?

We are talking about an entire continent for them to hide in.

Awesome! I had no idea what this thread was about when I clicked on it, but it's pretty interesting.

Well like with all species that have gone extinct in modern times there is still a chance they are still out there, just out of sight of those searching for them.

There has been sightings and a belief that in the hidden jungles of FNQ(far north queensland) are still sightings of the Marsupial Lion (Thylacoleo carnifex). Maybe or maybe not? But there is always the possibility of an envasive animal living in remote areas. Here is a link if anyone is interested in the lion. (a unique marsupial)

The sad story behind the demise of the Thylacine not only sickens me, but also makes me hope that this elusive creature will prove its continued existence and allow mankind to mend what we have broken.

Keeping my fingers crossed that this sighting was legit and that the Thylacine is not gone forever...
