Marsupial wolf or Tasmanian tiger? Extinct Australian thylacine was more cat than dog, researchers find

By examining bones, researchers have shown that the thylacine was an ambush-style predator that was unable to outrun prey over long distances. This hunting approach differs from wolves and other dog-like species that hunt in packs and pursue.
