Is the Tasmanian tiger still with us? This video and photos say that it is.
It's been a long time since a known Tasmanian tiger has been documented. As a matter of fact, the last one known to exist died in a zoo in 1933. From that point on, the thylacine, as scientists call it, has been declared extinct. However, that's not where their story ends. People from Tasmania have reported sightings and encounters with these animals, but have never been able to prove them true. Well, that is until now.
New footage of what appears to be a living Tasmanian tiger has been released. It is being touted as the best possible evidence that thylacines still exist — eight decades after they were presumed extinct. http://bit.ly/2eIKiL0

If you watched that footage, you probably had the same thoughts I did. I couldn't tell what I was looking at in some of the pictures they were declaring as evidence. However, they did catch something on film that many in the scientific community say could be none other than a genuine living thylacine. There were a few that showed a striped tail and body that looked like a tasmanian tiger.
I do find it sort of convenient, though, that all those other Tasmanian animals had no issues doing what they do in front of the camera, but the tiger sticks to the background. Who knows? You can't deny they caught something on video. But, is it a thylacine? I sure hope so.
