Yeah

Sad that they are extinct. I'm doing a life cycle research on the Tasmanian Tigers, but as they are extinct, the scientists couldn't find much info on them. So annoying! I felt so sorry. And mad. ㅡ.ㅡ

the tasmanian tigers are so cut its a shame that us humans had to kill them because they would make great pets if they were still alive and i think they would help with all the crime we have nowadays

what if your the tasmanian tiger and your being hunted for some thing didn't do and the humans don't care what would have been right if your that human and killed an animal that doesn't even understand human words and you killed it because a little thing we can all for get about. But no people had to kill them off and thats like killing your own kid if you know what I mean and plus they help keep some of the animal species down that we can't keep down by our self. some animals help keep some animals out of our way and keep nasty bugs that can kill us and we are killing the animals that help keep nature clean and safe fore us and.

I think the tisse tiger is hiding away from us because it may know that we were the danger and is in hiding so if we don't bother it. It could come back from hiding and trust us more and live with no more fear of us and don't have to hide. if you were the tasmanina tiger wouldn't you hide if you new humans where on the hunt for you and your family and friends and you couldn't do any thing to stop them, just watch in fear as the ones you new and loved died in your face. If I was the one to find a tasmanian tiger I would just leave it alone and keep away from it even when I know it's been in hiding for I don't many years.

we (humans) kill many beautiful things in this world. It is so sad that many people won't have the opportunity to see/experience the world as it should be.

The *Tasmanian tiger wolf* is not related to the tasmanian devil. But there is such thing and a tasmanian devil! It is a marsupial.
