I've read about Feral kids being found in some countries,
this may be another case.
Sometimes, when a family gets too big, a small child or
baby will be left out in the forest or jungle for animals to
kill, I know this sounds abit savage, but it happens and
in some third world countries, it's deemed not too cruel
and is needed for a greater good.
There have been may stories of the maternal instincts of
wolves and other animals, that take in the crying infant
and accept it as one of their own.
Sadly, the youngsters when found by humans, tend to walk
on all fours and utter cries of the animals that found them.
Reports say the feral children tend to fear rivers/lakes and
do not recognise themselves in mirrors.
Yet, their eyesight is very good in darkness and they tend to
prefer the night to come outdoors.
Usually, the feral live only a little while when captured, although
a girl and boy were found and the girl married, had children
and lived into a comparative old-age.
Rochom P'ngieng was lost in the Cambodian jungle at the age of eight when herding buffalo with her six-year-old sister (who also disappeared), and was discovered on 13 January 2007 after a villager noticed some of his food had been taken. He staked out the area and sighted a naked woman stealing his rice.
She was captured by villagers. She was unable to speak any intelligible language. She was recognised by her father, policeman Ksor Lu long, because of a scar on her back. Her parents have apparently agreed to a DNA test so her identity can be confirmed. Subsequently, the family changed their mind. Further suspicion was aroused by stories of a naked man seen with the woman, and marks on her wrists as if she'd been bound
