Shake It Baby...
Girl raised by cats and dogs
What an incredible story this is - how are parents, particularly the mother, capable of doing this??

A five-year-old girl found living with cats and dogs has been taken into care in Russia.
The girl, who had been shut up in a flat in the Eastern Siberian city of Chita with the animals for her entire life, could not speak Russian and acted like an dog when police took her into care.

"For five years, the girl was 'brought up' by several dogs and cats and had never been outside," police said.
"The unwashed girl was dressed in filthy clothes, had the clear attributes of an animal and jumped at people."
The flat had no heat, water or sewage system.

A police spokeswoman said the girl, known as Natasha, is being monitored by psychologists in an orphanage.
The mother of the girl, who appears to be only two-years-old, is being questioned by police but her father has not been found yet.

"When carers leave the room, the girl jumps at the door and barks," the police said.
Feral children usually exhibit the behaviour of the animals with whom they have had closest contact - a condition known as the Mowgli Syndrome after the fictional child from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book who was raised by wolves in the jungle.

Such children have usually built strong ties with the animals with whom they lived and find the transition to normal human contact extremely traumatic.

It is sad but not uncommon, there are many cases of such "feral" children. Have a look at FeralChildren.com | Feral children: isolated, confined, wild and wolf children One of the most famous was Victor, the wild boy of aveyron, made famous in a Francois Truffaut film, "L'Enfant Sauvage", The Wild Child, about a boy raised by wolves. Cases of feral children are often used to support the so called nature-nurture debate in Psychology.

we had one years ago here in Ireland, a young kid brought up in a chicken coop.

When they finally questioned the parents they said they knew what they had done was wrong, but they needed the eggs!

Only jokling folks. I knowits a terrible tragedy and disgracefully cruel
