The above is footage of the last thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian wolf or Tasmanian tiger. Imperfect comparisons, perhaps, but the Australian animal did have a very canine profile and somewhat tigerish markings. It was a marsupial, of course, which means that the resemblances were an example of convergent evolution in action.
Thylacines went extinct in the 1930s. Could they have been saved? Maybe/probably. What would it have taken and when would preservation efforts have to start. That's up for debate.
By 1933, synchronous sound was common in movies. Because of the size and expense of the cameras, they weren't practical for use in zoological field research like this. Otherwise we could have heard it too. As it is, it's eerie to see the last of something pacing around in broad daylight.
