The Javan tiger was declared extinct in 1970, but there have been reported sightings of them ever since. None have ever been proven, but in 2009, there was a claim that a tigress with two cubs had been spotted, and when officials arrived, they found fresh tracks on the ground. The following year, after a volcano eruption, tracks were again found in the ash. Seven years after that, a ranger at a national park took a picture of some kind of tiger-looking cat feasting on a dead bull. None of these sightings have been proven, but we can only hope that these tigers have escaped extinction.
