After years of searching, a group known as the Booth Richardson Tiger Team (BRTT) believe they have spotted a Tasmanian tiger (Thylacine).

The vision was recorded last November and was shown at a press conference, where experts were not entirely convinced on the extinct species return. 

The team said they had 14 cameras in an area within 50 kilometres of Maydena, changing the sites every fortnight.

Group member Adrian 'Richo' Richardson, who has been researching and trying to find a tiger for 26 years, is convinced of its veracity.

"I don't think it's a thylacine, I know it's a thylacine."

Greg Booth said he stumbled across a thylacine on Good Friday in 2015.

"I couldn't believe it. I couldn't sleep for days afterwards," he said.
