Have you ever seen what tracks in the snow look like after 3 and a half weeks in midwinter?
Sometimes the tracks are completely gone, the wind and snow covered them and buried the
tracks. That is why I doubt the testimonies saying that they saw precisely 8 foot prints,
and only 8 foot prints.
I have a couple of theories:
In order for these theories to be right, requires that the witnesses who
said they saw only 8 sock-foot tracks in the snow actually are wrong.
I tend to think they are wrong, because 3 and a half weeks had gone by,
and I doubt that tracks would be percievable that much after that long
of time in the mid-winter.
also, my theories involve a reindeer herd, so there would have been
alot of tracks from the reindeer. And the reindeer tracks may have obliterated
any human tracks. Even so, 3 and a half weeks later, I dont know if a herd of reindeer
tracks would be showing all that much in midwinter.
My theories are 1 and 2 below:
1- The 9 campers were trampled and attacked by a herd of reindeer, and
reindeer only. I have found videos on youtube.com showing reindeer
attacking people, either with their antlers, or with their front legs
standing up and punching at them like boxers, and the reindeer can be
dangerous boxers. I have also read stories about reindeer attacking
a person and becoming fixated on attacking them, and the reindeer wont
leave the person alone and chases them for 1-2 miles or continues
the attack for 1 and a half to 2 hours. This would explain
how the 9 campers ended up down the mountain towards the big tree,
as they were backing up from being attacked by the reindeer.
In this theory, I also theorize that the 9 campers might have been giving off a scent
into the air that attracted the reindeer herd to come directly to the source of the
smell/scent which was the tent. The scent may have been the food that they
were in the midst of preparing and eating, or perhaps someone sprayed some
type of perfume? I read that reindeer are curious, so perhaps any scent at all
that was not normally in the area, might have caused the reindeer to come and check it out.
I have read that people were afraid to go near that mountain, therefore the
reindeer herds locally in that area may not have smelled man all that much,
certainly not around there, so it may have seemed as a new smell to them.
Also, perhaps the warmer than normal temperatures that winter had caused crustations
of ice to form on the snow in the forest, which makes it harder for the reindeer to find their
food sources under the snow, therefore the reindeer were up above the treeline that night
digging in the softer snow there. But that also means the reindeer were quite hungry,
and the smell of spices or some foods the campers started to cook, were irrestible to them,
and they moved close to the tent to try and find the food.
I read that in february, the bull male reindeer normally will have lost their antlers,
but I wonder if they might still attack people if they got too close to the females?
Well, when the campers cut open the tent, and then stood up, they were near to female reindeer, and the
males immediately attacked the campers.
The campers would have been knocked down likely, and gone downhill, and would have been struggling
for their lives immediately with the bull reindeer stomping at them and trying to box them with
their front legs. Reindeer are very strong animals.
The 9 campers were completely overcome, if in fact they were attacked by many bull males all at once
as soon as they came out of the tent or stood up in the hole of the tent.
I imagine the campers falling down and struggling to kick at the reindeer and escape the trampling,
and trying to stand up to run away, but continually being forced downhill away from the tent.
And because of the scent that attracted the deer to the tent in the first place, likely the females
stayed around the tent, digging holes trying to find that food.
It was really chaotic for the campers, and some of them were already badly injured and not able to
walk or run, and the others had to try and carry them or drag them, while at the same time struggling
with a reindeer that was trying to kill them.
You see how they would have had to get away from the area of the tent in a big hurry and it would
have been downhill. And they could not return to the tent right then, as you could see a cluster of
the reindeer all around the tent some digging holes to look for the sweet smelling food.
(the sweet smelling food might have been that birthday present food, and some of them were perhaps
warming it up before eating it, and it may have had sugar in it, and reindeer are attracted by the
smell of sugar. And the reindeer were starving and had come up to high elevations looking for food)
The 9 campers would perhaps also seemed to be a threat to the pregnant females at that time of year,
another reason why the bull males might attack aggressively.
As for the missing eyes of some of the campers, that might have occurred if the female reindeer
attacked with their sharp antlers, but perhaps also from being struck by the boxing reindeer.
But I would have expected more puncture wounds in the campers if the females with antlers attacked.
But I think it was mainly the bull males attacking(they lose their antlers usually by february),
and having lost their antlers, wouldnt try to use their antlers to attack with, but they would mainly
stomp/trample, and box. It seems to me, that most of the injuries of the campers can be explained
by being attacked by the male reindeer, and stomped/trampled or punched/boxed.
Anyways, that is some of the ideas of this theory.
The missing tongue can be explained, as the woman got stomped/trampled inside the tent,
which broke her neck or upper back, which placed pressures on the tongue muscles and the tongue
was then forced to stick out of her mouth, and then another reindeer kicked her jaw or face or
head, and she bit down on her tongue which cut off the tongue. Please remember this is just one
theory, and I dont mean to offend anyone. If this happened inside the tent, there should have
been alot of blood in the tent from this alone.
2- The 9 campers were trampled by reindeer, and perhaps also attacked
by some reindeer, but also there may have been a reindeer herder or herders
also involved in the attack, actually guiding the reindeer herd to trample
over their tent.. This theory is sick, and involves other humans attacking
the campers for unknown reasons, and using the reindeer as weapons,
followed by using the cold weather and deprivating of clothing and shoes
as weapons as well. And the reindeer herders likely attack with
clubs or other weapons, and perhaps ropes and such, and basically herded
the 9 campers down towards the big tree.... after having the
reindeer trample their tent. Another possibility I considered is that
the reindeer herder(s) put one of their sleds on top of the front
entrance of the tent, intending to trap all the occupants of the tent,
while trampling them to death by running the reindeer right over them.
This would explain why the 9 campers could not get out the front entrance
of the tent. Also, being trampled, the tent would have collapsed, and
any movements of the people inside would have then shown to anyone
outside of the tent. The people inside the tent were instantly desperate
to get out of the tent, while being trampled by many reindeer continually.
They couldnt get out the front, so they
