    There are many cases of Feral Children. one Boy was Raised by Gazel, and he could almost run as fast as them.

    ^Although it would be cool if she could communicate with the dogs, it’s just not possible. She’s only imitating their behavior.

    If she`s wearing clothing.... How feral is she? has she been relatively normalised? If so, why does she still do the dog thing?

    I call BS for two reasons:

    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.

    I remember watching this on TV.

    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.

    like they said before she grew up like the dogs so her body is probably used to the panting...and learning language is the same as teaching a child language

    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

    it`s gotta be fake... they barely explained anything about her situation... it was too vague to be real... if it was real they would`ve gone into way more detail about it... like why her hair was cut and why she had clothing and explained the feral behavior more than just a vague "here`s a feral child she was raised by dogs, here look at her immitate a dog: ___" ... i don`t think any journalist doing a story like that would seriously believe that people could believe that crap without more explanation.

    right. First of all a human can`t run as fast as a gaelle, no matter how well they bring him/her up. There are anatomical reasons for a gazelles speed based on length of limb, being unguiligrade, and the muscles being packed at the proximal end of the limb.

    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.

    Ok, so when her parents put her outside she must`ve had clothes on. So did the clothes stay on her until she grew too big for them and ripped off like the incredible hulk? and by the time she was found, her hair must`ve been soo long that it would drag on the ground?

    This is sad and real. I am in a Psychology class, and about three or four chapters ago we talked about feral children. My professor showed a video that included this child and several others who were neglected or abused. The children learn how to behave from the next best thing, the family dog.

    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.

    Now that I`ve seen the video, they pretty much sum it up completely.

    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.

    ergh you guys, this is a true life thing here. I have actually seen this on tv as well, not just her but of other kids and I remember a little boy too. Of course it isn`t going to look all that real when they cram everything into a 2 minute clip, go find the one that is a hour long or so and than come back here and see what you think. BTW, if it was aired on a health or learning channel...it tends to be real.

    I saw this is sociology class. It IS real we watched a whole program about it- the worst case was this girl who`d be locked in a room for most of her life in America. She was taught how to say nouns and recognise objects but could never develop proper language. Also in a terrible miscarriage of justice she was taken away from the doctors that could help her...

    These theories of it being fake are pretty narrow minded. If you act like a turtle, do you grow a shell? No. She was raised by dogs, so she acts like one, doesn`t mean she has a different anatomy or anything.

    If you`re raised by, for example, scummy parents , then you`ll look and act like trash.

    It`s not fake. I heard about this case, along with other feral children cases, in psychology class. The girl was something like three years old when she started living with the dogs. If you`ve ever spent time around a three year old, you would know that they do know how to talk to an extent.

    If you want to know about an even more interesting case of a feral child, look up Genie.

In some cases (like the "Jeannie" mentioned above) it`s too late for them to learn grammar, but in other cases (if they are found early enough in their lives) they can live perfectly normal lives from there on.

    Yeah, the kids who are whining about how fake this is are usually whining about how fake everything posted is.

    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.

    This movies is fascinating. I`m studying psychology and i always wondered about the nature/nurture debate - to what extent are genes responsible for human behavior and to what extent is learning important. The video discusses this briefly, but I`ll try to elaborate:
    Think about these basic questions: how do you know what is right and what is wrong? How do you know how to speak, walk, and do all the things you do?
    One theory is that everything we can do is in us from the beginning (given by god), we just have to unlock these possibilities in ourselves - we are by "nature" what we are.
    The complete opposite theory is that humans come to the world with a "clean slate" and become what we are through our experiences in life - our parents and the world around us "nurture" us into what we are.
    Today most psychologists agree that the reality is somewhere between the two extremes. The question becomes: what is our "nature" and how importan

    (post got cut off) ... The question becomes: what is our "nature" and how important is the environment around us?
    Here is an extreme example: Imagine that right after being born, a child were not to receive any kind of stimuli - if it were left in a dark room and only be given food. What would that child be like? ... Whatever the product would be, would show the human nature without the influence of environment.
    This video shows us what happens to a girl when the environment does not include humans . The girl adjusted to her environment and mimicked the dogs around her. She learned how to get food

I think that "nature" may be responsible for a child`s inclination to mimic the creatures around oneself, but in end effect the girl`s environment made her the way she was. It is also remarkable that the girl was able to learn how to walk and speak after she was already 8 years old. I`m curious how the girl views herself - more as a dog or a human? Also, how does the girl feel about acting like a dog - did she just act for the camera, or does she actually feel "normal" behaving this way?

    What kind of morons are on this site now? I used to enjoy reading the posts and debate. Now it`s full of idiots using college classes, news reports and termpapers for actual authority.

    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.

    To the people wondering how she`s running on her knees without being hurt.. you develop calluses after doing something long enough and it no longer hurts, like if you`ve played guitar for a few years or if you work with your hands constantly.

    Once they found her they would have cleaned her up, cut her hair and got her some clean clothes when rehabilitating her. They shouldn`t need to explain that because that`s obvious, and it`s only a short clip. (I`m sure there is more extensive footage somewhere but consider, she has as much right to privacy as anyone.) She`d probably have had to be taught to speak, but since she probably spoke it before she was abandoned, it would have just been a case of reminding her and it wouldn`t take as long as teaching someone who never knew how to speak in the first place.

    It is real, and it`s more common than people would think.

    Did anyone else catch this?

    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!!

    Why does everybody automatically assume it`s fake?

    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.

    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.

    Fake? Apart from all the very good reasons above, who the hell does the following:
    Get a camera crew, a girl running around like a dog, some proffessor-looking people to talk about said girl, plus footage of ukranian towns, to make a fake documentary about something that isnt funny, satiritical, or anything else that constitutes making a fake documentary.

    Before everyone calls "fake" on stuff, think- "Why would someone go through the trouble to make this fake?"
