Tasmanian Wolf: Thylacinidae - Geographic Range

wolves lived bounty settlers

When Tasmanian wolves were still alive, they were thought to have lived on the entire island of Tasmania. By the 1800s, Tasmanian wolves were rare in the southwest and western regions of the island, except in coastal areas. Scientists have learned this by reading the diaries of early settlers and examining the bounty payment records of people who lived during that time. Early settlers in Tasmania thought of Tasmanian wolves as pests to be eliminated, and bounty money was paid to hunters who killed them.
