Right out of a Disney movie or Rudyard Kipling story, authorities in India discovered an 8-yr-old girl who had been raised by monkeys. Watching the videos though it’s hard to tell whom in stranger, the ‘monkey girl’ or the massive crowds oogling at her.
Cops in Uttar Pradesh, India have found a girl who behaves less than humanThe 8-year-old girl was rescued by the police in from a group of monkeys. The girl was spotted by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav, who was on a routine patrol in Motipur range of Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary. Which was a result of a lot of luck, seeing how the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary covers an area of about 157.4 miles.
The park was created in 1975 and provides strategic connectivity between tiger habitats of Dudhwa and Kishanpur in India and the Bardia National Park in Nepal. Its fragile Terai ecosystem comprises a mosaic of sal and teak forests, lush grasslands, numerous swamps and wetlands. It is home to a number of endangered species including gharial, tiger, rhino, Gangetic dolphin, swamp deer, hispid hare, Bengal florican, the white-backed and long-billed vultures.
When Inspector Yadav tried to rescue the girl, who seemed to be comfortable with the monkeys, the animals and girl screeched at him. After the cops after great efforts to rescue the girl they got her admitted to the district hospital.
The girl they are calling ,’Mowgli’, can neither speak nor understands any language. She gets scared at the sight of human beings which brings many questions why the videos show crowds of people in the room with her. The doctors treating her said that she often gets violent which I can only guess is because of the stimulating environment of being the center of attention.
The girl has shown slow improvement following the treatment. While she still eats directly from her mouth, she seems to handle a glass of water fairly well. She seems to have taken to training of walking on her legs but at times she walks like animals using her hands and legs together.
Here is some video of the girl when she was first admitted to the hospital:
