Across 3 weeks a tent was left unoccupied, cut open, flapping about, with meat on the floor which remained untouched, and further down the mountain slope, and in the forest, and in a watercourse animals would use to drink, was a trail of 9 bodies, and yet neither food nor bodies were consumed by predators, with the possible exception of the eyes of 2 bodies being pecked out inside the ravine.
This against a backdrop of it being said that wolves had been eating the carcasses of the Mansi deer. Did the wolves go on holiday for 3 weeks after the DPI? Were they too full up on venison to bother hunting for anything else? Or had they died too, or been driven from the area?
Nine people died, laid out in the open, and their tent an unsecured feasting place with bread rusks and meat scattered or laid out on the floor, and across 3 weeks none of this was consumed by wildlife in the dead of winter, when all are desperate to survive, looking for any available fat, the land frozen over, and with nothing else to observe or scent.
