Case 1: Oxana Malaya, the Ukrainian Dog Girl
SEE YOU TUBE VIDEO BELOW:
Oxana is not really either a feral child or a confined child, but rather a neglected one. She spent much of her childhood between the ages of 3 and 8 living in a kennel in the back garden of the family home in Novaya Blagoveschenka, Ukraine, although she did spend some time in the house with her alcholic and neglectful parents. Her childhood spent in the company of dogs meant that Oxana exhibited many of the characteristics of a dog: she would run about on all fours and bark. When first found in 1991 she could hardly speak. Although Oxana can now talk and behave normally in many respects, she lives in a home for the mentally ill and will never be considered a "normal" person.
