I do believe many of the theories, hypothesis have valid points.
Some of the theories may overlap or support ideas that others have.
Igor B.'s theory explains very well the exit of the tent by the visit of a wolverine because he specifies several details.
1) ••• A temperature just below 0° C. For the hikers, this temperature seemed mild,
which explains why the hikers went out underdressed, as they might have thought to return quickly to the tent and stay out only a few minutes.
2) ••• In a small volume the effects of the spray were magnified.
Catabatic Wind-Acute Stress Reaction-Cold Air Drops ---> Acute Stress Reaction Lupos = Günter Wolf
had evaluated: Air volume tent = 3,5 m³
(I do not think it is enough to fire a shotgun in the air for the hikers to come out immediately without holding the axes in their hands).
3) ••• The stench dissuades them from returning immediately to the tent and encourages them to resort to another solution: lighting a fire near the cedar tree.
4) Together with Per Inge Oestmoen Oestmoen, I believe that the injuries found at the autopsy can only be explained by a hostile human attack.

I am not competent in Vishnevsky stains and other difficult to interpret forensic clues.
For the moment I have more confidence in the conclusions of Eduard Tumanov, professor and expert in the Russian National University and Pirogov Institute (They were attacked) than in the conclusions of Igor B., who is an anonymous resident of Ekateringburg, (they fell and got injured or crushed).
5) Ziljoe, you seem to me to underestimate the possibilities of memory and intelligence of the wolverine, which have much in common with the boreal lynx, certain dogs or even the great apes.
If the (supposed wolverine) did not show up on the bodies of the hikers a few hours or days after its visit to the tent, I can only see 2 possible explanations:
1) Either the wolverine was killed by a pack of wolves, a large bear that got angry and counter-attacked, a man with a gun... or others.
2) Or it joined the cozy basket of its master trainer who cuddled it and rewarded it for its efficiency.
