Thylacine Caught on Video?

80 years ago, the last confirmed living thylacine died. Since 1936, though, there have been reports of sightings of this strange marsupial. Recently a video was released that supposedly shows a thylacine running through someone's backyard.

The Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia claim that a thylacine can be seen running through a backyard in Adelaide, Australia. They say the video was shot in February and that five people witnessed the animal. They posted it online this week because Wednesday was National Threatened Species Day in Australia. Wednesday (Sept. 7) is the day the last known living thylacine died.

Researcher Neil Waters said:

"We believe our footage to be a small thylacine moving around the Adelaide Hills. You can see the animal's head. You can see the body of the animal, it does appear to have some sort of dark discoloration on the body which may or may not be stripes. You can clearly see it has a very distinct hook on its rear foot, it has a long stiff pointy tail. Where the tail connects to the body is very wide, which is typical of a thylacine."

The video if blurry (what cryptid video isn't?) but to me it looks like it could actually be a thylacine, if it isn't a fake. I'd love it for this video to actually show a thylacine, but right now I have to say I really don't know what is shown in it.

What do you think?
