Feral Child Raised with Dogs and Cats in Russia

May 27, 2009

Russia (ChattahBox) – A child who has been described as ‘feral’ after being so badly neglected that she reverted to the actions of an animal, has been taken from her family home in Russia.

The five-year-old girl was left to sleep with dogs and cats, eat off of the ground, and was never taught to speak or walk properly. Instead, when Welfare officers arrived with a neighbor who had called them for help, the girl barked and growled at them.

It is a growing problem in Russia, as child abuse cases soar, and more neglect and substance abuse is reported in various regions.

The girl has been placed in an orphanage.
