The Tasmanian Tiger: more cryptozoology?

The last thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, died in 1936. These were large carnivorous marsupials that lived down under — until they didn’t anymore.

Now there are some “scientists” who are claiming that Tasmanian tigers aren’t really extinct.

Question: how do these claims compare to claims of bigfoot sightings?

The Guardian article mentions that the investigators are cryptozoologists who have also “attempted to find the yeti.” An important piece of context. The Huffington Post write-up, on the other hand, just describes them as “zoologists.”
