An eight-year-old girl has been found living with monkeys and unable to walk or talk like a human in India it has emerged

A little girl, resembling all the characteristics of the animated character Mowgli, who had discovered in the Katarniaghat forests of Uttar Pradesh's Bahraich two months ago has shown signs of improvement in health.

She is just eight years old, and at the moment is unnamed with no identified family.

Chief Medical Officer DK Singh added to Scroll.in: "The girl was found two months back, eats and walks like animals, and runs away on seeing humans". Surrounded by monkeys, the girl screeched at the officers when they approached and tried to flee on all fours.

The girl is not the first documented case of a child living with monkeys.

Inspector Ram Avtar Singh, from Motipur station, in Bahraich, said: "She was terrified of us, she could not speak or hear us properly".

Majority were probably fake, but one of these "rogue" accounts has actually drawn the ire of the Trump administration. But the federal agencies and other defendants "have not come close" to demonstrating any of this, the lawsuit states.

An officer eventually managed to rescue the child by speeding away from the monkeys in a vehicle as they gave chase, Tripathi said. "He sped away with her in his police vehicle while the monkeys gave chase", Tripathi said.

"We have asked that she be placed in the juvenile court, from where she can get some future direction and be re-integrated into the society".

Doctors have nursed the girl back to health but said she has been struggling to adjust to the human world after spending an undisclosed time in the wild, according to IFL Science.
