I saw this footage this morning. Thylacine or injured animal? The shape of its head and the way it holds its tail certainly has me interested

Interesting..I sure hope it is, hard to confirm though.

Very interesting, the rear end looks very similar. Be neat if it was, that means they have been mating. Maybe a whole group of them?

Not an expert, obviously, but I would be amazed if it is a tiger. To me it looks to be a type of canine.

Certainly resembles one's silouhette.

Id love to have one as a home defense pet. That # would scare the piss out of someone.

It is difficult to say but it looks similar.

Look at how long the tail is. I think it is too long for a canine.

It seems to be hurt on one back leg.

But does it have flapping ears? That's what I see in the video. In some pictures they have short ears, or medium length ones.

I'm of the same mindset as the poster of the youtube video "not convinced either way" It sure doesn't look or move like a fox or a dog and sighting a dingo on York Peninsular so far south of the dog fence would seem almost as unlikely as sighting a thylacine (i'm from South Australia myself) The stiff way it holds its tail, the "marsupial like" shape if its head is what i'm looking at. Having said that, it does look like it could be injured, almost like one of the back legs has stiffened up. Who knows, could be an injured thylacine


It is worth noting that there have been historical sightings in South Australia and in the Flinders Ranges there was footage taken back in the 1970's at a campsite that was even more interesting than this on imho. I can't seem to find that footage anywhere so if anyone reading knows what i'm talking about please post it

I have viewed the video at least five times and now retract my claim of it being a dog.

Not sure what it is but not a dog / coyote.

Cool find.

Yeah, wish we could get a freeze frame and closer view. I'm on a tablet so limited software.

Good eye on the ears. I would be baiting and trail camming.

Keep in mind, from the pictures it has short front legs. It looks like my house cat when he runs slow or trots. Anyone with a house cat knows how odd they look when the trot.

The tail is compelling along with the hop. Very well could be a TT.

I'm trying to figure if I can gauge a size based on the star droppers for the fence in the background. Hard to tell how far away the fence is though. Anyone have any experience with this as I think if you knew what you were doing the fence could help give a scale?

Well the silhouette matches a thylacine more than a fox, dog or dingo imo. It also runs very similar to other native Australian animals like the Tasmanian devil. Although it does appear it could be injured and hopping on one back leg.

A dog hopping on one back leg could give the impression it's back legs are longer than the front and I guess the sunlight could be obscuring a bushy tail but the length of the tail and the way it hangs seem to resemble a thylacines more than a dog. Very interesting to say the least.

If they were left in this scenario, tracks, may identify the animal. I'd certainly be looking for them if I felt this canine looking beastie was a Tassie Tiger and captured it on camera.

Retracing or following the direction of the animal may indicate a pattern. I'd like to know where it came from and the location of where it may be travelling.

My thoughts,

G'day Harold, I tend to think those are posts in the background due to the thickness. Can't see the wire between them. Doesn't mean its not there. To separate wire there may be some plain old fencing wire coiled between each strand of the boundary fence.

Cheers,

Bally

I am very sure Thylacine research groups would be in contact with the guy that filmed this and checking out the location.

Cheers mate. Just me if I filmed this. I'd be right out there checking for tracks and if I found them I'd be returning with camera and plaster of paris.

kind regards,

bally
