So, after doing some digging it turns out that photo IS of a live thylacine.
It was captured by bushman Bill Powell in 1911. He caught it in a snare, as I thought, which explains the injury to it’s neck. The animal was later sold to Mrs. Robert’s and sent to live at the Beaumaris Zoo, and this photo was probably taken shortly after it’s arrival. It’s also believed that it’s the same animal from the famous photos by Harry Burrell, now known to have been taken at the same zoo.
