The last Thylacine

Schrodinger The last Thylacine was filmed in 1933 in the Hobart Zoo where it lived for three years. The Thylacine died on 7 September 1936 as the result of neglect

Cecil, you're my final hope
Of finding out the true Straight Dope
For I have been reading of Schroedinger's cat
But none of my cats are at all like that.
This unusual animal (so it is said)
Is simultaneously live and dead!
What I don't understand is just why he
Can't be one or other, unquestionably.
My future now hangs in between eigenstates.
In one I'm enlightened, the other I ain't.
If you understand, Cecil, then show me the way
And rescue my psyche from quantum decay.
But if this queer thing has perplexed even you,
Then I will and won't see you in Schroedinger's zoo

The story of Schroedinger's cat. (an epic poem, as told by Cecil Adams)
