TASMANIAN TIGER EXTINCT?

***I just found out about the Tasmanian Tiger on my last trip. This is a photo of the last captive animal in the Hobart Zoo, 1934. 
Like any good community, Tasmanian council paid their citizens a few pounds per animal to kill all these amazing creatures, in order to make way for more livestock. Although they are considered extinct, there have been multiple sightings of this striped dog and many people believe there is a small community of them still flourishing in remotes parts of the bush.
