About the Tasmanian Tiger The Tasmanian Tiger, or thylacine, has been extinct since 1937, when the last one died in a zoo. I'd like to think we have a few out there still! The thylacine was a unique marsupial found throughout most of Tasmania before European settlement in 1803. Between 1886 and 1909, the Tasmanian government encouraged people to hunt the carnivores and paid bounties on over 2000 thylacine carcasses. Only a handful of animals were located after the bounty was lifted, and the last known thylacine was captured in 1933.
