OxanaOxana Malaya was a feral child in the Ukraine raised by semi-stray dogs after being neglected by her alcoholic parents. The girl was raised by the dogs for five years before finally being taken away from her parents when a passerby noticed the young girl seemed more like a young dog.I watched a documentary that interviewed her as an adult, as well as demonstrating the behaviors she learned while she was raised by dogs. It was so uncanny watching her imitate her old behavior for the filmmakers and then sit and converse with them about it in the next shot, I couldn’t help but be inspired.
