Before everyone calls "fake" on stuff, think- "Why would someone go through the trouble to make this fake?"
The video says she already knew how to speak when she curled up with the dogs.Sure, she would have had to relearn some of it, but she did know how to speak.
From looking at it, I would say it`s probably real, but it is very hard to learn a language after the age of, what was it, 9, I think? I`m not sure. I don`t speak Ukranian, but I wouldn`t think it was perfectly formed like a human raised Ukranian would speak.
They said that this girl started staying with the dogs when she was 3. The neighbor didn`t report it until she was 8. What the hell?!? If I saw my neighbor`s daughter sleeping & acting like a dog night after night, I would report it right away, not wait FIVE years!!
It is real, and it`s more common than people would think.
Oh, you got us!
Please don`t insult people without anything to even back it up...therefore I find you---A hastey idiot!
Muahahaha!You have been labled!You hate it don`t you!
Then there are those of you who recreate yourselves claiming sophomorically, "I am a scientist so..." or "My brother is a psychiatrist..." And, you use that rubbish for authority.
Do you really think anyone over 12 believes you? Bullocks.
HAHA Good call
I saw this in class as well, with the girl who got taken away from her doctors - same video - I don`t see why it`s so hard to believe, there`s been cases of this happening hundred of years before America was founded.
PLUS - perfect example of why it`s possible for a girl to imitate a dog? I bet your parents are close minded, so... in turn, you are too.
Get a job, and not at Walmart.
I find it sad that, just because it`s different, people automatically assume it to be fake. Not everything unusual/unbelievable is fake; if that were true, the world would be a dull place indeed.
She grew out of it eventually because the Ukrainian version of DCF took her away from her parents.
If you`re raised by, for example, scummy parents [like those white trash people, c`mon, you know who I`m talking about, the family of 7 you see at McDonals], then you`ll look and act like trash.
hahahah that would be quite sad
Maybe you should try to be less gullible and ask harder questions instead of believing anything put in front of you.
Don`t be a tool.
But it`s horrible to think about...Gah.x x x
It does look a little fake the way they shot it, but know that the video with her acting as a dog is about 12 years old and that they intermixed it with her from present day. They caught her in time to rehabilitate her.
This particular case, if I recall correctly, the parents were alcoholics and left her outside with the dogs because they didn`t want to deal with her while they were having hangovers.
Also, most feral children who age past 12 without gaining the ability to speak probably never will.
Secondly she was obviously acting for the cameras to show how she behaved with the dogs.
Its a pity when she met her parents she didn`t launch at them and chew their faces off. Now, that would have been good tv.
I remember seeing this advertised on tv, but i never bothered watching all the way through, i saw a bit at the end where she was learning human language, she was a little retarded to say the least, well.. you would be wouldnt you
Erm.. they put clothes on her before they started filming for the sake of the viewers and indeed the cameraman (who would want a naked she-dog pouncing all over you? :|) obviously.. she didnt have clothes when they found her in the wild
i wouldnt mind her as a pet and KoalaMeatPie, could u put a link for the Gazelle plz
also, cleverclogs above me, she`s IMITATING a dog panting. I.e. sticking her tongue out and breathing in and out quickly. And if you hadn`t noticed, the clip where she`s running around like a dog, and the clips where she`s talking, are like 5-10 years apart. If you can learn basic French an a year, I THINK you can learn Ukranian in 5. And from the ages 1-3 you learn a lot of language anyway.
1. Dogs pant because they have no sweat glands and that`s how they lower their core body temperature. When a human pants they hyperventilate and pass out. We`re built differently.
2. Language aquisition. If she were truely feral, her human language skills would be very impared or non-existant as once the cirtical language aquisition window passes in a child, it`s very hard to catch-up or compensate.
