Remains of Last-Known Tasmanian Tiger Discovered in Museum Cupboard

Researchers in Australia have discovered the remains of the last-known Tasmanian Tiger, which died in captivity back in 1936 and subsequently saw its skin and bones go missing at some point in the decades following its demise. The remarkable find was reportedly made by Robert Paddle and Kathryn Medlock, who managed to locate the specimen in a cupboard belonging to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's education department, which had received the remains from the Hobart Zoo shortly after the animal passed. The duo attributed the disappearance to both a cataloging error as well as the historic nature of the specimen not being fully understood at the time.
