A True Story of a Child Raised by Wolves
The extraordinary true story of Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja, the only documented case of a feral child in Spain.
Marcos was only seven years old when he was left in a remote valley in Sierra Morena, Spain. He had to help an old sick shepherd take care of a herd of goats. But soon the shepherd disappeared and Marcos was left alone. He barely knew how to survive until a pack of wolves adopted him. When Marcos was 19, the Spanish National Guard captured him. Marco's struggles continue as he begins the process of adapting to human society.
