Jonah Weston directed the mesmerizing documentary titled Wild Child: The Story of Feral Children. We’ve all heard of Tarzan, the man who was raised by gorillas. The legend of Tarzan is just one story of a feral child. There have been many, many stories about children like Tarzan who somehow ended up in the wild as babies and were raised by wild animals. The question we ask is do they really exist?
Wild Child: The Story of Feral Children answers that question. A girl in the Ukraine raised by dogs, for example. This documentary film shows you how some feral children have grown up to be feral adults, and how they can adapt to living with other people and have before. Does a feral child eventually turn into a wild animal, or do they simply mimic what their animal caretakers do. See how being raised by a pack of dogs and having no contact with other humans may effect the human mind.
