    I am pretty sure if you released coyotes in Australia they would just end up competing and/or interbreeding with the existing dingo population; both are similar sized caninids that occupy a similar ecological niche.

    Likely, just wish whenever a thread about something even remotely cryptid related was made here it wasn’t filled with literal npcs and feds shitting up the whole thing with “never existed” bullshit.

      Why the frick would we do that? We already have so many small marsupials that're endangered, bringing over coyotes would just add another predator to the several destructive ones already introduced.

        Once all the cats are dead release some Burmese Pythons to kill off the coyotes.

          The coyotes would drive bandicoots to extinction before they do cats in tassie

      only people can eliminate invasive species, any new animal being introduced can only make things worse

        There is testing going on to use parasitoid wasps to control/reduce emerald ash borer beetles that are invasive to North America, and they seem to be working reasonably well. These wasp conveniently only parasitize emerald ash borers, so they do not impact other wild life.

    Anyone else here from Tasmania?
    We have a massive temperate rainforest covering almost the whole western half of the island. Most of that area is inaccessible and even unexplored, to the extent that people get lost and die out there, and that the west coast is only accessible by small aircraft or by going around the coast by boat. New species of frogs and fungi and other small organisms are found out there pretty much every time researchers enter it. I don't think it's inconceivable at all that tassie tigers could have maintained a small population in the bush there without people knowing, especially since they were always notoriously reclusive.
    I could go on about tassie tiger survival for a long time but TL;DR I think it's possible.

    If they were still around, someone would have found definitive evidence by now. They're a well documented, large, predatory mammal, not some kind of obscure frog or deep sea fish that could just go missing.

    Just a reminder that the Australian government responds to any reported sightings with massive poison bait campaigns.

        It's because if the Tasmanian Tiger does still exist, it would massively destroy any kind of resource extraction in the region due to endanger species protection (which has already fricked over a lot of areas in Australia). So they actively try to ensure it is extinct.

        These are the same people who attempted genocide by race mixing against the abbos and have declared dingos, which predate white australians by several thousand years and lived in perfect harmony with everything BUT the tasmanian tiger, an invasive species that is threatening native species.

        They are also trying to make it cool and socially acceptable to kill random cats for wandering around, even though the only cats that threaten anything live in and near certain bird habitats, and do all this environmentalist whining while using over 75% of the continent for mining and grazing sheep and cattle which actually decimates the ecosystem so that it can never recover.

          Fricking. Bullshit.
          Cats in australia have doubled in weight and have pretty much gone feral because they're in every sense of the word an apex predator in Australia, they're even out competing the dingo's.

              Yeah, the other anon probably picked a over-dramatic photo of an Australian cat.
              But he's right at some extent, they've gotten bigger than the average cat and are 100% feral.

              The reddit answer would be that everything there can le heckin kill you, but in reality for a foreign placental predator Australia is basically a endless land of plenty with little dangers. Every large native predator has been long extinct so nothing really keeps cats in check, only dingos and eagles can manage to do that. Marsupial predators in the same weight class are slow and moronic in comparison so they are quickly outcompeted, the only real competition in the same weight class is the red fox which came to the continent later. All the prey marsupials are easy pickings and if that's not enough there is a gorillion of rabbits and birds around. The climate is similar to their native Africa so they can quickly readapt to any environment, unlike foxes who are a bit more limited.
              Since the environment is perfect for them with plenty of food and barely any predators or competition they can keep growing much more than they could in America.

              I wouldn't be surprised if in the next million year or so Australian cats grow to cougar or even jaguar size and start exploiting the huge introduced ungulate populations which are as of right now a untapped source of food because dingos aren't currently really built to hunt them.

          Australia is surely extremely fricked up as a whole,just like Canada. Even the US feels more soulful

      There are no more thylacines. Everyone has a mobile phone camera now and nobody has ever taken a pic of one.
      Same with sasquatch, Loch Ness monster, etc. The only difference is that thylacines really did exist.

      It would make sense if it is the mining companies or farmers trying to kill of the Tasmanian tiger if one is sighted, to avoid further government action, but the government itself doing it seems implausible.

      If the Tasmanian tiger exists that would give the Aussie government more of an excuse to exert control over land owners, require mining companies to pay more for "environmental mitigation fees", require more extensive environmental reviews (that can be conveniently bypassed by greasing the right palms), gives a good way of screwing over any farmers who start commiting wrongthink, and so on. Even the best intentioned environmental laws can be turned into tools for corruption and graft, and given the current Aussie government I hardly think they would pass up an opportunity for that.
