This is video from 1933 of the "last Tasmanian tiger," the thylacine. Thylacines, now extinct, were carnivorous marsupials that inhabited Tasmania until they were wiped out by a human campaign of extermination that lasted through the nineteenth and into the twentieth centuries, although thylacines were never a threat to anyone. You can learn more about them at the Thylacine Museum.I was reminded of the thylacines when I posted the article on the danger to Tasmanian devils. Thanks, dodgyd55.
