Best Answer

The Thylacine, more correctly known as the Tasmanian Tiger or Tasmanian Wolf, became extinct during the 20th century, and thus no real research was done into its speed or other habits. Because it was a carnivorous predator, it could be assumed it needed to be a fast runner in order to hunt effectively and to catch its prey.

I'm afraid this is unknown, there are historical reports which describe the animals speed and gait, but they're conflicting. So far there's been no definitive study of the animal's post cranial skeleton that could answer this question either.
