WOLF CHILDREN

two girls who were rumored to be reared by wolves in India and who took on all the significant lupine life trends, howling in the night, like bolting food, and running on all four legs. Whenever caught, they were about 18 months and 8 years old; the younger girl died within a year. The older girl lived until about age 17 and, even though she was never totally civilized, she learned to walk on two feet instead of four, and within a half-crouch, learned to speak a small vocabulary, and learned to wear clothing and carry out chores.
