View Full Version : Siberian child 'raised by dogs'

Russian officials have taken a five-year-old Siberian girl into care, saying that she had apparently been "brought up" by cats and dogs.

The girl, who is unable to speak, was discovered living in a squalid flat in the Siberian city of Chita.

Police said she had never been allowed outside and had adopted the behaviour of the animals she lived with.

They said she now "barked like a little dog" and jumped at the door when her carers left the room.

Police are questioning the girl's mother, but her father has not yet been found.

'Animal language'

A police statement said the girl was unwashed, dressed in filthy clothes and had the "clear attributes of an animal".


This is the only thing I could find that wasn't gay related.

This is so awful. I saw a documentary about a girl (they always seem to be girls) who had been kept in a dark room, strapped to a chair or bed for years. She'd passed the brain stage for talking or real socialization.

Despite the huge effort at rehabbing her, she could never function normally and ended up in group homes. :(
