How Many Children Are Feral? (#1 Answer)

Children will mimic those around them, and seek company and comfort from whatever source available – so if the most communicative creature in your life is a dog, it’s possible you’ll pick up the habit of making barking noises 🙌 That’s not to say that you think that you are a dog 😉 Or that you’re ‘speaking’ dog 🙌 Of course animals communicate verbally. Sometimes in complex and sophisticated ways. However, the sounds we think are the meaningful clucking or howling of a chicken-boy or a wolf girl, in fact, they’re the preverbal or disordered vocalizations of a severely disabled child. [1]
The story begins with Genie’s father, Clark Wiley. Growing up in Pacific North-West foster care, he worked in LA as a machine operator on the aircraft assembly lines. Irene Oglesby is his younger sister, and a former dust bowl immigrant. His controlling nature and hatred of noise made him want children. Yet children came. After being kept in a garage, the first child, a girl baby, passed away. The second was due to complications during birth. John, the boy who died from birth complications, was followed by Genie, five years later. This was brought to our attention by Delma Segura. [2]

According to Claude Cavanaugh zmescience.comLucky enough to have been adopted by a capuchin monkey group, who are known for accepting human children within their families, was her lucky day. Marina learned from the capuchin monkeys how to capture birds and rabbits using her hands. She was then able to live and take care herself. After five years, she was “rescued” by hunters, who found her and sold her to a brothel. After five years, she was “rescued” by hunters who found her and sold her to a brothel. Running away from brothels, she lived in the streets and was made a slave to mafia families. She was able to meet her husband through connections and luck.

Maricela Cleary theweek.comHere’s how Marina Chapman used to get her girls to go to bed. These were no fairy tales, though — they were based on her own life. Chapman was 5 years old when she disappeared into the jungle and was left to die. After “copying their food and drinking habits, social activities, language, and their culture,” she joined a tribe made up of capuchin monkeys. She remained with them for five years. Chapman tells the extraordinary story in The Girl With No Name. It is the incredible true story of a wild child. Marina’s tale and five others of animals-reared children are here (last edited 38 days ago, by Mauro Takoradi in Ghana). [4]
This is an exceptional report boredpanda.com points out how we often associate the term ‘feral children’ with kids being raised by wolves, monkeys, or dogs. Although these tales sound crazy, it is not true. Many studies have shown that these children are rarely seen with wild animals, or showing certain behaviourss. What’s behind these cases is so much sadder – child abandonment. Many of these kids were left to fend for themselves because they’ve had some behaviourr problems or psychological difficulties, oftentimes by parents who were keen on drinking. Children turned to animals for reinforcement. Animals, on the other hand, don’t have that much parenting sense to ‘adopt’ a baby from a different kind. No matter what cause, tales of feral kids are disturbing. [5]
