consumption of mammoth meat

One of the more chilling descriptions of this is in Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn's writings (reference at home...), in which he begins
by quoting a TASS report on a frozen mammoth being eaten by
its discoverers. What the report omitted, he goes on to write,
is that the finders were zeks imprisoned in the Gulag, and that
we can only imagine their desperation to eat such a thing.
