yeah, in very very small numbers or none at all...it would be great if it was still around and us humans could help them breed or something and get their numbers up a bit. The likelihood of them being around is extremely small so I don't know if it'll ever happen.

I hope they don't find him. Human will keep the in captivity if they do find him. They a better of in the wild.

But, if they did find them it may be a good thing to capture a few. Because then they could get a breeding program like they do with other endangered animals. Personally, I think they may still exist, although in small numbers. There are two kinds of extinct. There is, gone totally from existacne, and, near being wiped out. I think that the thylacine is the second one.

What a shame. I've seen pictures of this animal and it looked very cool. Once again humans cause the extinction of a wonderful animal.

I hope they don't find him. Human will keep the in captivity if they do find him. They a better of in the wild. it owuld be far better for us to capture every last living on and start breeding population tyhat can be controled by humans as oposed to keeping them in the wild where one natural disaster or poachers or a disease could kill them all. it worked with the red wolf and can work with them. in fact i think tigers need to be taken out of the wild too its the only way to save some of the much rarer species.
