A girl described to be feral has been found in a forest in India. The eight-year-old could not walk or talk properly. At the moment, she doesn’t seem to have a family who could identify her. What’s surprising is that when police officers found her in the forest in Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary in Bahraich, she was accompanied by three monkeys.
When the officers found her, she reacted with a screech, which also prompted the monkeys to react. She was found to have wounds on her legs and elbow, according to Inspector Ram Avtar Singh. It is believed that her family abandoned her because her clothes are still not so dirty.
Currently, the girl is being treated at a hospital in Bahraich. According to her caregivers, the girl cannot understand the people talking to her. She was acting much like an animal who fears unfamiliar things around her. She would even have violent episodes as doctors continue with her treatment. The girl reportedly tried to escape from the hospital.

She is currently under treatment for malnutrition.
She couldn't walk or talk properly.
It is believed that she had been abandoned by her family.
But that’s not to say that the girl didn’t have any progress. After getting cleaned and fed, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dinesh Singh said that she “now walks like a human.” The girl has also learned to eat all by herself, but she wouldn’t eat off a plate but rather from the bed, Dr. Dinesh added.
The girl continues to receive treatment, but once she gets better, government child services will take her in and decide what will be good for. For now, no one knows what really happened to the poor girl.
The girl is now being compared to Mowgli of The Jungle Book.
News outlets have now compared her story to that of The Jungle Book’s Mowgli, in which the character was lost as a baby in a jungle in India and then raised by wild animals.
