Archaeologists are celebrating the discovery of a centuries-old clay pipe that features one of the oldest European depictions of the Tasmanian Tiger ever seen. The remarkable object was reportedly first found a few years ago when an individual digging for antique bottles unearthed the piece at the bottom of pit which once served as a dump in the 1830s. It was subsequently sold at auction for an undisclosed price to a collector of thylacine memorabilia, who brought it to the attention of amazed researchers.

A wonderful find but a sad reminder of the great loss of a once numerous species. I am holding out hope there still might be a few left. The reported sightings before the fire was encouraging. It would be a marvelous thing to see this lost species return to us.

Maybe that's why the UFO's from our future want pieces of cow? Maybe something wiped them all out?
