‘Feral children’: Abandoned by parents and raised by animals

The Leopard Boy, India, discovered 1912

The boy child was two years old when he was taken by a leopardess in 1912. Three years later a hunter killed the leopardess and found three cubs, one of which was the now five year old boy. He was returned to his family in the small village in India. When first caught he would only squat and ran on all fours as fast as an adult man could do upright.

Photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten immersed herself in the dark and distressing world of feral children: kids abandoned by their families to be raised by animals, and recreates their experiences in her work.
