The Tasmanian Tiger Alive?

For years people have reported seeing an animal that has been widely thought to have gone extinct back in the 1930’s on the island of Tasmania.

But over the decades, many reasonable people have claimed to have witnessed the animal only to be laughed at and labeled a “nut”.

And now there might actually be some proof, or at least official interest in the possibility that the animal is still alive.

Could other beasts and beasties people have claimed contact with over the years? Even in our Mojave Desert?
