Jungle Woman

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | 'Wild Cambodia jungle-girl' found


A Cambodian girl who disappeared aged eight has been found after living wild in the jungle for 19 years, police say.
The girl is believed to be Rochom P'ngieng, who disappeared while tending buffalo on the edge of the jungle in remote northern Rattanakiri province.

Her father says he has identified her through scars and will have DNA tests taken to prove she is his daughter.

But the BBC's Guy De Launey in Phnom Penh says there are other possibilities to her identity.

Members of Vietnamese hill tribes often cross into Cambodia through the jungles, he says.

Many are seeking asylum from religious persecution and are keen to avoid contact with the authorities, he adds.

'Bare bones'

Local police said the woman was "half-human and half-animal" and could not speak any intelligible language.

Her plight came to light when a villager noticed some of his food had been taken and staked out the area, which is 350km (220 miles) north-east of Phnom Penh.


She was shaking and picking up grains of rice from the ground to eat

Sal Lou, father

Deputy provincial police chief Chea Bunthoeun told Associated Press news agency: "He spotted a naked human being, who looked like a jungle person, sneaking in to steal his rice."

The villager and some friends then caught the woman.

Sal Lou, a village policeman, said he recognised the woman as his daughter from a scar on her right arm.

He said: "When I saw her, she was naked and walking in a bending-forward position like a monkey... She was bare bones.

"She was shaking and picking up grains of rice from the ground to eat."

Mr Sal Lou said the family was now watching her closely after she took her clothes off and suggested she would return to the jungle.

Re: Jungle Woman

yeah i saw that on tv yesterday, its kinda a breakthrough for psychologists studying language, they say that her "language" might have been a way for her to communicate with animals--whether she can or not i have no idea but it would be cool if she could

in previous cases, especially with one girl where her parents kept her in a crib until she was like 12, only fed her every once in a while and never spoke with her--when authorities found her they though she was just mentally ill, but in reality, after a certain age, your mind can't learn that much in terms of language--while she can understand commands and can say a few words (i think she had a vocab of about 100) she could never learn more. Although, they think a reason for this is that she may have been mentally challanged to begin with and this is why her parents abused her like this, but again, they don't know, the abuse could have caused the problems.

with the boy that was found in france (the movie "wild boy" is based on it (i think thats the title), he remained wild, could not keep his clothes on, and could only learn a limited vocabulary.

a lot of this shows the basis for learning when it comes to language--it shows that your mind really does "stop" after a certain age. think about it, have you tried taking up a second language after the age of 12 and it didn't stick? same reasoning.

cliff notes version: because of her age she probably won't ever talk, or if she does, it will be a very limited vocabulary

Re: Jungle Woman

I think I dated her sister, briefly, in Da Nang in the summer of love, 1967.

Lol uncalled for.

Too bad she didnt have an identical twin, could further expose the whole nature vs nurture debate.
