Don’t let the LA Times article mislead you into accepting the deaths of these poor individuals was the result of a simple avalanche – there may be another explanation. While the avalanche on Mount Everest may appear to be a tragic accident, there’s the possibility it was the result of a hurried cover up by local officials caught unaware. Officials of the Nepal Tourism Ministry stayed on site at Base Camp 1 to oversee the “rescue operation,” even though it became obvious early on that the four Sherpas rescued in the beginning, were the only living people that would be seen after this was over. At the time of the article, twelve bodies were recovered and four are still missing.
Early on a Friday morning, around twenty guides were on the paths, securing climbing ropes for this season’s crop of wealthy extreme sports climbers. Rumors are spreading that perhaps the commotion the guides created, as they prepared for this springs climbing season, may have roused a pack of cryptids feared by villagers in every part of the world for centuries…werewolves.
Normally, werewolf packs tend to avoid killing humans in clearly visible locations for fear of discovery. However, the existence of Himalayan werewolves hit hard by the wrath of this particularly brutal winter past, could have been starving. If true, the beasts may have took upon the group and tore into them with a fever that is seldom seen in healthy, well nourished specimens.
A scene left by these crazed beasts would have been so horrific that the only way to keep it under wraps was to literally cover it up- with a fresh coat of snow. The sheer size of this avalanche and the number of lives lost is unprecedented. The tons of white weight that crashed down on the bodies would have obscured all signs and traces of an attack. In fact, it would have obliterated any trace of a massacre and the injuries the bodies sustained could easily be attributed to the trauma of the avalanche.
Survivors were quickly sent to the Grandi International Hospital in Katmandu where they were held for ‘observation’ in the Intensive Care Unit. This ‘observation’ would have been necessary to determine if any infection had spread and to coach the survivors regarding the official story they were permitted to tell about the incident.
The legendary existence of cryptids in the Himalaya’s is well known in the area and are referred to by the locals as Yeti (Abominable Snowmen). The ability of these creatures to go undetected for so long leads many to believe they are actually werewolves – able to shape shift into humans to avoid discovery. Usually these creatures behave as a shy tribe keeping to themselves and rarely bothering humans. The last sighting was in the mid 90’s, and it had been more than 20 years before that one. The local people, the Sherpas, make their living by guiding people around the cliffs and appear live in co-existence with these creatures, the attacks must have left many shaken on both sides.
