Solo tame: build a 3 by 4 set of pillars with a space in between each, 2-3 pillars high with one end open. Place bear trap in the 'cage', and shoot thylo to get it off the tree and aggroed. Lead it through the 'cage and while it is stuck close off the end. Thank at your leisure and don't forget to watch out for everything else that wants to kill you.
I got lucky flying through red woods and found a red one on the ground attacking an argy. While it was distracted, I shot it with tranc arrows and knocked it unconscious. I obviously named her Red. BEST TAME EVER!!!
