Tasmainian Tiger – 70 years extinct?

Seventy years ago today (September 7th 1936) the last known (captive) Tasmanian Tiger known as “Benjamin” died.


Alleged sighting have been reported every since, several this year in fact, but even after numerous searches and at least one $1,000,000 dollar (Australian) reward, no solid evidence has ever been presented to back up the sightings.

It’s said that the Tasmanian Tiger is possibly the most likely of all extinct creatures to make a surprise comeback from the grave, and I would imagine there isn’t a Cryptozologist in the world who wouldn’t want to be the one to rediscover it.
