Feral Children

Image 1 / 10

A girl on all fours snarls amid a pack of wild dogs, a filthy child is groomed by a troop of monkeys, and a small boy, surrounded by chickens, pecks at the ground in search of food. Accounts of children raised by animals have been the stuff of myth and legend for generations, but scattered among these folktales are stories of horrifying truths. In brand new series ‘Feral Children', anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota sets off on the trail of these extraordinary youths. From deep in the Ugandan jungle, to the concrete tenement buildings of Russia, her quest will take her across five continents as she uncovers the stories of the wild children, who live - and survive - on the very edge of humanity.
