Natasha: ‘Feral’ Russian Girl Raised by Cats, Dogs

A 5-year-old Russian girl named Natasha has been found after spending her life being raised by cats and dogs in a filthy apartment in Siberia. Although Natasha (who is now under the care of psychologists) does play with other children, she often lunges like a dog and exhibits many of the characteristics of the animals who raised her. Natasha’s condition (‘Mowgli Syndrome’) is reminiscent of other so-called ‘feral children,’ including Oxana Malaya.
