Newspaper Articles on the Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus)

Two of Tasmania's weekly newspapers, The Weekly Courier and The Tasmanian Mail, have been digitised by STORS but are not searchable.

NB: Numbers between vertical lines (e.g. |3|) refer to the column number on a given newspaper page. I believe that this will make articles much easier to find as it significantly narrows the search area.
