Animals are said to be a part of lives. Dogs, cats, rabbits etc are like our family members since we keep them as pets. But for these children, animals were the survival kit. They grew with them and their true stories are very fascinating. Julia Fullerton-Batten, a photographer from Germany has put together these images. These following photos show us the documented cases of some feral children belonging to various continents.
