Possible Thylacine encounter in 1996 in Western Australia
The A.C.R.O. Received a report of a possible Thylacine encounter that took place in 1996 roughly 20 minutes South of Cervantes Western Australia, 16 minutes south of Cervantes is the Nambung National Park and around that area there is many farms and bushland. The sighting happened around the 28th of January 1996 and it had just turned dark, the eyewitness stated that he was a passenger in the front seat when he noticed something in the distance illuminated by the headlights on the edge of the road, at first he could not make out what it was but as they came within 50 meters away the eyewitness stated that he thought it was a dog but as they came within 20 meters the animal finished crossing the road and the eyewitness said that's when he noticed it was clearly a Thylacine without stripes standing out. As they drove passed he saw it disappear into the bush on the side of the road they turned back around to try and find the animal but it was nowhere to be seen.
