|Dateline Dibbler Q2 3196.384
|A large group of experienced hunters were found dead by colonial militia after they were reported missing in the Schwartzenberg Mountains on Dibbler Q2. The bodies of fifteen big game hunters, all with experience of tracking lethal raptors were found eventually – many of them had been horribly dismembered. The colony’s security chief has secured the earea, and ordered that no further hunting or exploring be allowed in the densly wooded equatorial mountainous region until the predators concerned had been identified. One of the militiamen we interviewed said “… I was there when we found the bodies … I mean, man, it was gross!”
