Thylacine with bird in mouth

Thylacine with bird in mouth. This is a cropped version of a famous photo which has been the focus of much debate as it is not known whether it was staged using a taxidermied Thylacine specimen with a dead chicken placed in its mouth or a natural shot of a live Tasmanian tiger. AMS392/V8221
