Pre-historic looking head?

Thylacine: the new bigfoot.

Seriously, though--I want to believe it could be true.

Yeah, I know there's a million dollar reward for anyone who can find a Tasmanian tiger. Probably something similar out there for this. This was pretty impressive footage. Definitely not a mangy fox.

Having seen an "extinct" animal years before it was recognized that it might not be extinct (eastern mountain lion, broad daylight, maybe 15 yards away from the car, in the open, slow moving and visible for about 20 seconds - at that point they'd been declared extinct for something like 80 years despite a lot of sightings and Canada's strongly differing opinion on the matter) I definitely take declarations of extinction with a grain of salt now.

There are dozens of reports every year (if not more) of thylacine sightings in Aus. to the point where they probably don't investigate it anymore. The scientific evidence points towards a definite extinction. Much like UFOs and things like that, despite our level of technology, no one seems to be able to ever photograph or record a thylacine with any degree of competence or verifiable quality; it's always grainy, horrible, inconclusive stuff.

There are places in the country where people claim thylacines have been common for decades, yet cannot catch a live one (or even produce evidence of one) with huge rewards being offered for them. Expert trackers and hunters have never been able to find one.
I think it's safe to say the declaration of them being extinct carries a significant amount of weight. It is, of course, remotely possible a small population might exist somewhere, but it seems highly unlikely.

The proportions are wrong.

It's a stray dog with a limp.

I'll give them one thing, that's a really long tail. I've never seen a dog with a tail as long as its body,or even close.

Likely, it's the product of interbreeding between a dingo and a stray domesticated dog. That can produce some weird results.

The real tell is the in the proportions on the hind limbs. Thylacines had very short metatarsal bones in relation to their tibias.

It's some kind of canine with an injured forepaw moving with an odd gait.
