Two men lost for months in the Siberian wilderness had to resort to extreme measures to stay alive.
Aleksandr Abdulaev, Aleksey Gorulenko and two other men had been on a trip to a remote Siberian river during the region's warm season, but run in to trouble later when they had to return on foot through the forests after heavy snow. Abdulaev and Gorulenko were finally rescued after more than four months of wandering in the wilderness, however the fate of the other two men would go on to become a matter of some debate.
When rescuers found the remains of one of the missing men they discovered that the body had been stripped of a lot of its flesh and that someone had cut in to it with a sharp tool. Abdulaev later confessed that they had resorted to eating their dead comrade in an effort to stay alive but insisted that he had already died from the cold beforehand.
"One of two men who survived four months of wandering in Siberian Taiga has confessed that the pair ate an unlucky friend who died from the cold."
