In my opinion this has wrecked whatever credibility Bailey ever had. To have kept quiet about it for 18 years, then pipe up when he's got a new book coming out, even if it were true, which it isn't, it looks so damn dodgy.

Never mind at least the Prague find is a major boost.

I read Col's first book Tiger Tales and it seemed quite restrained and not bonkers in any way.

I don't think he's mad or anything like it, after all he's probably done years worth of valuable research by interviewing the old bushmen, also he's got quite an input into the thylacine museum. But, I don't believe he saw a thylacine on either of the occasions that he claimed. The first sighting he relates without any embellishment, it's the timing though of his revealing the second sighting that I think is seriously misguided.
