Feral Children

Feral Children is a photo-project by London-based photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten. Her disturbing images portray the early years of fifteen of young people who were reared by or with animals without human contact, children so neglected and abused that they found more comfort from animals than humans. Fullerton-Batten has recreated the experiences of these feral children and each image is accompanied by their story.

I am really fascinated by this. Remember the show "Lucan" in the 70's about the boy raised by wolves?

I don't remember it. I didn't watch television for the second half of the 70s. I had my first child in 81 and bought a tv to keep myself sane.
