Mowgli’ girl cared for by dogs


PD*27210542

Madina, now aged three, was reportedly raised by animals after her alcoholic mother Anna was incapable of caring for her.

Now taken into care by authorities in Ufa, in central Russia, she is recovering from her unusual upbringing. She was discovered by social workers at her mother’s home on all fours and gnawing on bones with dogs.

A social worker alleged: “The child is angelic but she has been deprived of love and care, except from the dogs.”

Doctors are reported to have said that the Madina is mentally and physically healthy despite her experiences, although her vocabulary is limited to “yes” and “no”.
