A bear is possible but what about a Siberian tiger? They don’t hibernate. I watched a programme about conservation of these tigers recently. I think the reserve was in the ural mountains
, I did not want to climb down in discussion of any exotic versions of this case, but in this theme it is possible to tell shortly. Anyway I will try very much.
The Star Man
, I think that you became hostages of transfer of terms from Russian on English.
Siberian tiger it not the tiger which lives in Siberia. He is the Amurian tiger, that is a tiger which lives in the Far East, practically on the bank of Pacific ocean. If to use correct geographical terms, the Far East it any more Siberia. Just as Ural Mountains, it yet Siberia. These are the different geographical areas having the specificity. As Ural Mountains are removed from an area of dwelling of the Amurian (Siberian) tiger more than on 7000 kilometrs or on 4500 mi. Here a picture where the locations of pass and an area of dwelling of this animal are designated.
Therefore any reserves on Ural Mountains for this tiger could not be. Especially it is necessary to consider that they live in certain environmental conditions which on Ural Mountains are not present. They are around an arrangement of the river the Cupid, therefore they live there.
I can tell at once and about bears who live in a place where there were events of Dyatlov group.
1.In 1959 bears was little and areas where they lived local Mansi knew well. By January and February 1959 Mansi did not know about one bear who has not laid down on hibernation. The bear is called "Шатун -Shatoun (in Russian) - bear who does not hibernate" which does not sleep, leaves appreciable snow traces, which local Mansi did not see.
2.If the bear on what that to the reasons has got out in the winter from a den (lair, holes) it cannot live that more than 2 or 3 weeks because will be lost for hunger and an exhaustion.
3.Bears hunt and live in wood, in woodless zone where there was tent Dyatlov group it would not began to rise. Especially if it is necessary to meet half-way wind.
In these parts I have received all data obout bears from local Mansi-hunters. They hunters very qualified and well know that was in a current of many last years.
For example, it is the local Mansi- hunter Valery Aniamov at where his father`s sign, has won a bear many years ago.
On surface tree (it is a cedar or Siberian pine in science) the sign that the bear here is won and a patrimonial symbol (катпос
- kathpous) of Aniamov family is visible.
Valery's father took part in searches of Dyatlov group in 1959.
The last that I want to tell, character of the traumas received by participants of Dyatlov group is completely not similar on what turn out from a bear. The bear tears a body claws when leaves scars in 4 or 5 numbers with an interval in some centimetrs (about 1 inch). The bear can bite off the big pieces of a body with teeth. The bear can break a backbone, hands, feet and edges. But it anything (except breakage of edges) it was not revealed. If to tell about breakage of edges that from effort of a bear there should be crises in forward and back parts of a thorax. It turns out from the scheme of mechanical loading from compression by a bear. But crises are in the description of the judicial doctor sideways. It is characteristic for loading the big plane in front at fast process. The bear cannot develop such speed of loading of that it big and heavy and does slower movements, than it is required for reception of crises which the judicial doctor has described.
