Life is a beautiful journey and interestingly in uncountable ways and forms it continues to surprise us. The relationship and bond between humans and animals has been really special since centuries. We have come across many tales when animals have been adopted and brought up by humans. But have you ever wondered what would happen if innocent kids who have no idea whatsoever about the world are brought up by animals? No? Then my friend you have arrived at the right place. Let’s have a look at what happened when these peculiar situations took place:
1. Marcos, the Wild Man
Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja is a man who lived in the wild for as many as 12 years. Tired of abandonment by humans, especially from his stepmother who made his life hell, Marcos decided to stay back at mountains and in the wild. There he resided with a family of wolves where he turned into a family member and would use to eat whatever they did and slowly animal’s sounds replaced human words. Marcos can still imitate the sound of the deer, the fox, the aguililla and other animals really well.
2. Oxana’s unbreakable bond with Dogs
The Ukrainian girl, Oxana Malaya spent a substantial amount of her childhood with dogs as she was completely ignored by her alcoholic parents who didn’t care for her at all. Between the age of 3 and 8 years, Oxana resided in the kennel situated in the backyard of her home where she found the much needed love from dogs. She has acquired all the habits and gestures of dogs and their company fills her with lot of joy and elation. Oxana is internationally renowned for her dog-imitating behavior.
