The only way in which Tasmanian devils and Tasmanian tigers are related is that they are both marsupials.

It is also more closely related to some small marsupials than it is to the Thylacine.

Did Humans destroy the Tasmanian tiger's habitat?

No. Humans destroyed the Tasmanian tiger. The Thylacine, which is the proper name for the Tasmanian tiger, was a marsupial which became extinct in the 1930s due to a bounty being offered for every adult and joey killed. The habitat itself has suffered some clearing for agriculture and urbanisation, but much of Tasmania remains wilderness, and people still speculate about whether some individual Thylacines could still be surviving, hidden, in this wilderness today.
