Girl found living with monkeys

Indian police are still trying to identify a missing girl who was found living in a forest with a group of monkeys.

The girl, who is believed to be 10 to 12 years old, was unable to speak, was not wearing any clothes, and was very thin. She was taken to the hospital in Bahraich, a town in Uttar Pradesh state in northern India.

Rescuing the girl wasn’t an easy task. When rescuers tried to rescue the girl, they were chased away by the monkeys. One man was attacked, but he had managed to grab the girl and speed away in his police car.

According to NBC News.Com, the girl behaved like an animal. She was running on her arms and legs and was eating food off the floor with her mouth. After treatment, she began to walk normally and eat with her hands. She still isn’t able to speak but understands what everyone is telling her.

Police are still determined to find out how the girl ended up in the forest and who her parents are. She will be sent to a home for juveniles until she is identified.
