Photos: 4 People Who Were Allegedly Raised By Animals

We've all heard stories about people who were raised by animals at some point in their lives. However, we often draw the conclusion that such incidents can only occur in movies and not in real life. Do you realize, though, that some people claim to have been reared by animals?

1. Marina Chapman:

Marina Chapman is a British woman of Columbian descent who rose to fame after claiming to have been reared by monkeys. After spending her youth in the forest, the 71-year-old claimed to have been nurtured by Capuchin monkeys. Marina said that she was removed from her community when she was about 5 years old and released into an unknown region before spending the next few years in the company of Capuchin monkeys. She was eventually rescued by hunters after going through some difficult times in her life. She is currently a published novelist in the United Kingdom.

2. Marcos Rodriguez Pantoja:

Marcos Rodriguez Pantoja, who was born on June 7, 1946, in Spain, was purportedly raised by wolves. The Spaniard was reported to have been sold to a goat herder at the age of seven before being returned to civilization at the age of nineteen.

3. The Dog Boy from Chile:

A Chilean youngster was also said to have been raised by animals. He was dubbed the 'Dog Boy' after his parents abandoned him and he was claimed to have been reared by dogs. He was claimed to have been suckled by the dogs after spending two years in their companionship.

5. Oksana Oleksandrivna Malaya:

Oksana Oleksandrivna Malaya is the last but not least. After being mistreated by her father, the 37-year-old girl was alleged to have lived with dogs. And by the time she was discovered, she had already begun to exhibit Dog-like characteristics.
