Once again, I’ve been sucked into reading a news piece, courtesy of a Daily Mail headline. Nestled in between “Four United fans jailed for Roma violence,” and “Alive: Father and three children lost in blizzard spent three days huddled in freezing ditch” was the gem “‘Werewolf boy’- who snarls and bites- on the run from police after escaping Moscow clinic“.
The article states that there are many feral children roaming around the Russian countryside who, once abandoned, have been raised by various wild animals. I remember finding this topic intriguing when I was in high school; there were a few TV documentaries and books I devoured about feral children. Unfortunately, I’ve become out of touch with the subject. I’d like to think America is quite lacking in feral children who have been raised by animals. It would be interesting to form an anthropological study on feral people; from what I remember, they usually don’t reintegrate into their initial societies.
