The closure of people's minds, understandings and boundaries are subject to either current environmental pressures brewed by ignorance or insecurities sculptured by pre-environmental education whereby they know no better - Dean Harrison

Queensland Museum collection manager Heather Janetzki said Thylacines were extinct and what Ms Smith saw was more likely to be a mangy fox.

Bollocks. Thats no fox. Not even close.

When I saw the photo my first thought was fox - seen a few like it through a scope over the years.

Yeah, sorry, that is a mange afflicted fox. The ears are too long to be a Thylacine, it's legs are foxlike, and the brush, though partly mange affected, is held as a fox's is. The severely crusted skin of the rump might look like stripes, but that's the crevices of skin around which the cruelly thickened scabby skin has split a little with the fox's movements. Poor thing.

Case closed as far as I am concerned.

I have to agree on the mangie fox theory. They loose the hair on the tail, generally look a different shape because of the lack of healthy bushy fur.
