There're lot of examples coming from Europe, one of the most recent was Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja, born in 1946, he was left in the forest of southern Spain in 1954, where he grew up among wolves to 1965, becoming one of the pack, eating like them, behaving like them. When he was found, the guy was total savage and behaved like a wolf. And he is STILL alive, and remember everything perfectly (in fact, he never was used to live with humans again)
This guy is still alive too and claims he can bend spoons with his supernatural human powers.
And this is just one among many in a long series of European children risen by wolves, as far back as the mythological Romulus and Remo.
Do NOT apply conclusions among human and chimpazee interactions to human and wolves. Chimps and humans can't live well together; packs of wolves and humans can get together finely on the other hand.
Nobody - absolutely nobody who even keeps wolf-mixes would say that. Period. Because they do know what kind of problems you do have to endure to keep that animals, specifically in a human world.
Here he explain, in Spanish, the very first time he entered the pack. He discovered a cave with all the cubs, where he took refuge; the she-wolf gave him a piece of raw meat which he ate badly. The she-wolf at very first threat him roughly, but after giving the meat and Marcos eating it, she licked his face and allowed the guy to stay with the pack
That story of that guy looked like that in reality:
He won the lottery to even find a wolf den. The circumstances I do leave aside now.
And while he should actually know – that this is a stupid situation, because these are young of an animal – he decided to stay.
And just by doing that he forced the wolfs into three options:
They wait till he leaves. And they can wait that out for days.
They decide, because they are hunted by humans to abandon the young.
They consider the life of the young worth fighting for. And if you are in this confrontation – you can even have a hunting gun – no chance.
So while being Jack from the woods - that guy claimed he ignored something every person who even spends free-time in nature – knows: If there is offspring – eat them or walk off?
But he claimed he did not do that – something absolutely strange happened: The wolfs did not know he was there. This is brillant already. They were the most incompetent wolfs that ever lived, but why not. Mabye the Southern Spanish wolf is a little more stupid than his counterparts more north.
The wolfs decided to barf in front of his feet.
That is how they transport the meal for their young. They do not bring some steak with them.
They carry their food in their body and barf it out.
So I truly hope that this is what he said in Spanish – there was a wolf coming to me and vomited the food that was meant for its young in front of my feet...
That is the story he claims has happened and if you believe that... I can seriously not help you, except suggesting – go more where the wolfs are.
This is why I gave you – so that you do not have to long to read and study wolfs, the most obvious reason – why that does not work:
The bowel of every meat-eater is three times longer than yours.
This is why we cook meat. You can not digest uncooked meat. If you would live from that – you will not only have horrible belly pain, you will die in one month in agony.
It is a torture method around the globe.
You do not have the hardware to eat what every predator eats.
That is something every butcher, every cook knows and even every musher and guy who lives with dogs, if they depend on them. This is why they cook for their dogs.
That is already the problem with all that children growing up with wolfs. They do not have the hardware to digest what wolfs can digest or lions or whatever.
And if you would have grown up yourself with big dogs (plural) or wolfs or similar – you would know that they remind you 24/7 that you are a human.
What I can say, because I saw first hand – and I have never heard otherwise from anybody else – I still do deal with people who are into wild-life protection or zoos or whatever – how four generations of children grew up in daily contact with wolfs, wolf-dogs and dogs of the same size.
So how cute that story of that guy is – he spiced that up.
I tell you only this - as I do not like that attitude of 'I am running on i-net knowledge so I know what I am talking about and if something contradictory comes cross my desk - this must be BS' - otherwise I could tell you a lot of red-flags – that 50% of what the average person thinks wolfs do – they do not and only dogs do this.
Everybody – even people who do have wolf-mixes – do know this, because they witness this 24/7 of their lives and the stories of this guy (or people) are totally contradictory to that, what everybody can tell who deals with such animals.
