Feral Child Found in Russian Home

A three-year old girl who walks on all fours, gnaws on bones, and growls at those who come too close to her has been found in a Russian home. Authorities say the girl was being raised by dogs in the home after being neglected by her alcoholic mother.

Madina did not get along with other children; she fought everyone and the other kids refused to play with her. So she took-up with the dogs. Her mother would eat at the table and let Madina eat on the floor with them. Madina slept with them in the winter when it got cold. Now, she knows only two words: "yes" and "no."

Social workers who took the girl from the home said she was mentally and physically fit, just neglected.
