Thylacine Sighting - Location unsure

Thylacine Is Still Alive just received a message through the Contact Form about a sighting some time back. I'm not sure where this took place and how long ago it was, but it is an interesting one, indeed.

Convergent evolution? A possible link between the wolf and the thylacine

There isn't much to say about this. All I know is that the writer of this post thought this thoroughly about a possible link between the thylacine and the wolf. He starts off, talking about the thylacine and their history that we, pretty much, already know about, including some information I figured to be true. There is a comparison between the two pack hunters, including family size, age the young start to hunt with them, and other interesting comparisons. This is only a theory, but not a definite. This theory is pretty interesting and I think you all would like it as well. Give me your opinions on the subject.

Tasmanian tiger sighting proves it is not extinct - IBT

July of 2015, IBT made a report of a thylacine hunter who seem to have claimed the tiger is not extinct, but instead roaming the mainland Australia. When I see "hunter" in the mix, I'm a bit squishy about it. But that's not the important part of this article by the International Business Times.

Thylacine sighting maps - various sources

I know we don't have an official sighting map, ourselves, and I don't have the funds to go out, looking for these places to validate them myself, but other thylacine sites do have sightings maps on them that give a general idea where the sightings are commonly at. Below are a couple maps by the http://www.tasmanian-tiger.com site. Do enjoy.
