You can’t trust every photograph, expecially in a digital age. But could the claim actually be true?
An unidentified animal photographed by a farmer in a coastal town in Australia has people scratching their heads and wondering whether an animal once thought to be extinct might still be around after all.
That, or a case of mistaken identity.
Here’s the photo that’s causing a stir:
Here’s a picture of the presumed-extinct Tasmanian tiger suspected by some to be the mystery animal in the photo, above.
The last known Tasmanian tiger died in 1936 in Hobart Zoo. There has been no conclusive evidence that the tiger is still alive, despite hundreds of sightings being reported. The latest reported sighting came out of South Australia from the Thylacine Awareness Group.
They were the largest known carnivorous marsupials until they became extinct in the 20th century.
Mr. Groves stated that it could possibly be a mangy fox but it wasn’t afraid and it was a lot larger. He also said that it just stood there watching him intently for about five minutes until scarpering. There is a lot of bush and a lot of cover so it could possibly be living there peacefully and comfortably. He quite rightly says that even though it was only taken on a mobile phone, the image shows the animals’ features quite clearly. This was also his second sighting in just a matter of weeks.
Is it just a coincidence?
Or is this the real deal?
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
