The story of the feral child has been around for just about as long as we can remember. From Ancient Roman myths to fictional characters such as Mowgli, the narrative of the wild child has been present in many cultures. But while many of these are indeed legends, there are instances when children lived in extreme isolation from humans. This happened for various reasons; from being locked in a room to living in the wilderness for several years. Things turn particularly interesting when these children have the company of animals, either in the wild or indoors.
