I'm not sure which forum to post this. Regardless, could this be footage of a thylacine recently filmed? The body shape and tail matches and also the odd style which the animal moves is not that of a dog.

Is this incredible footage appearing to show 'extinct' Tasmanian Tiger running through fields in Victoria proof that the Thylacine still exists? | Daily Mail Online

It would be nice, but I saw nothing convincing. The strange movement is probably due to whatever was wrong with it's forward foot.

Plus where are all the thylacine road accidents, animals killed by thylacines, thylacine tracks and dung? Animals do not exist without leaving trace, especially big carnivores.

The ears are too big for a TD.

Looks like the Prancing of a Min Pin...

I always hold out a tiny bit of hope but I know the odds of a few of them still existing is extremely small. What struck me about this video is the tail. The animal whatever it is, never raises it's tail higher than it's rump, never wags it or moves it from side to side and it's almost the total length of the body not including the animals head.
Also the way it walks favoring one front leg, then neither and then the other front leg. It's just very odd and doesn't resemble a dog to me but it's wishful thinking on my part.

I’m these days of 4K video and HD displays, it always seems to be the worst videos and pictures that get the attention. I guess it’s because it lets the viewer’s imaginations run wild.
