It was an unfortunate hiking accident which can easily be explained. They were the unfortunate victims of an avalanche and hypothermia. The reason they were partially dressed can be explained by paradoxical undressing.

The reason the bodies had a strange tint was due to the fact that they had lain dead in the sun for a number of days. The woman with the missing tongue could be attributed to scavengers, since that is one of the parts they will go for first. The three hikers with the crushed bodies and the torn tent all point to an avalanche as the cause.

Also, claims about radiation and orange spheres do not appear in the original inquest, which suggest they were add much later.

It was a sad, tragic accident, but nothing paranormal.

good points... the whole just the tongue missing didn't really sit right with me either, and logic would dictate the removal of snow in the case of an avalanche. mmmm... maybe it WAS a hyrax!!(no, not really)

It's a fascinating case which is most likely due to the electromagnectic field emminating from a flying cryptid imo. The fear factor was enough to send the group into a panic stricken run into the night.

You always come up with the most original stuff dude.  :tu:

"electromagnetic field emminationg from a flying cryptid". and i also like how it is "Most likely" as in your words...

This is a forum about cryptozoology, is it not? So, I'm giving a balance to the overly weighted mainstream "it's all urban myth" brigade.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Good point, so what do you think happened to the hikers? I'm really curious as to how anyone, even up to today, cannot suggest plausible explanations. And please, no more hyraxs  :D

And if crypotzoology wants to start being taken seriously, it's followers should stop making stuff up because it's fun and come up with plausible explanations that do not fly in the face of scientific facts and that would be ecologically viable.

no, you're trying to slap your little, ridiculous hyrax theories into just about every thread in this forum. you haven't even answered any of the reasonable questions posed in your own thread, and you just infiltrate others with your nonesensical tie-ins to their topics. come on, man.

it's such a strange story that it's kinda hard to even speculate as to what even MIGHT have happened. obviously there was just enough facts left out for it to end up that way. it's unfortunate, because i for one would like to know what happened... or even had enough to speculate myself as to what happened.

Well you have to address the quality of information coming out of cold war Russia for a start and the sheer volumes of crap across the internet on such a thing.
Being frozen there would have been a lot of facial damage anyway so it may not have been so clear.
A lot of small carnivores go for the tongue, especially foxes and mustelids.

true, communist anywhere isn't a very reliable source for anything truthfull. but i think even small carnivores would have gone for the eyes too, unless of course the supposed radiation caused the tongue to taste like crap.

It's a forum about cryptozoology.  As in 'reported animals or creatures that fly in the face of science and/or common sense'.  Not 'Animals made up on the spot out of whole cloth just so you can feel more creative.'

When somebody reports a giant hyrax, feel free to go coocoo for cocoa puffs.  Until then quit making it such a master of disguise that everything from the Lizard Man to the Beast of Gevaudan to Chuck Norris turns out to be a giant freaking hyrax.  It wasn't even a good explanation for the one you made it up for, and spamming it everywhere as the answer to everything from werewolves to the common cold is not picking up any credibility points.

These people were in an incredibly dangerous, hostile environment that would kill them the second they forgot it.  I fail to see why an unknown flying animal with completely unrealistic science-fiction 'electrical field fear powers' is needed to explain what happened to them.

Why do people think the tougne was removed by an animal, where it clearly states thae only hikers footprints were found.  Avalanche is not the reason i think, but i do however one of them got crazy and attacked the fellow hikers.
