New Tasmanian Tiger Photos – Probably Fakes :-(

ABC News is reporting that the new Tasmanian Tiger photos (as yet unpublished anywhere) which created such a stir recently are now believed to be fakes by the curator of the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery.

Mr Pemberton says he thinks the photos are clearly doctored.

“The thylacine in the image was very similar to another photograph that we quickly identified,” he said.

“But secondly there were two photographs and there was a time gap between the two of… five, 10, 20 seconds… and the posture of the animal hadn’t changed, which I found very strange.”
