Tasmanian Tiger Photographed? A farmer has shared an image of what many believe to be a Tasmanian tiger near a town in Victoria. Local resident Peter Groves spotted the creature while out walking near Clifton Springs on Friday, and managed to take a quick snap on his mobile phone. Having posted the image to social media, a range of theories have been put forward, including suggestions that the creature is the long-lost Tasmanian tiger. Mr Groves said the creature seemed unafraid and stood watching him for around five minutes. 'It could just be a mangy fox, but it seems to be bigger than a fox and it's not shy,' he said. .
