Some footage has emerged which appears to show a Tasmanian Tiger roaming the wilds of southern Victoria in Australia.
The animal was declared “extinct” in 1936.
The video, which was released by the Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia, shows close up footage of the animal, with experts very confident it is a Tasmanian Tiger, or Thylacine to give it its scientific title.
Filmed in 2008 but only released on Friday, Thylacine Awareness Group founder Neil Waters says there are a number of features which would indicate the animal is a thylacine, or a possible subspecies of it.
The Tasmanian Tiger is striped with a long stiff tail like an extended tail bone, which doesn’t wag like a dog, as well as thick neck and is much stockier than a dog or a fox, all of which Waters claims is evident in this footage.
Waters says the way the animal walks is also like that of thylacine, as opposed to a dog or fox.
