image for Spaniard raised by wolves disappointed with human life

Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja was once the “Mowgli” of Spain’s Sierra Morena mountain range, but life has changed a lot since then.

Now the 72-year-old lives in a small, cold house in the village of Rante, in the Galician province of Ourense.

The wolf cubs accepted him as a brother, while the she-wolf who fed him taught him the meaning of motherhood.

He slept in a cave alongside bats, snakes and deer, listening to them as they exchanged squawks and howls.

It’s something that didn’t affect him so much when he was running around barefoot and half-naked with the wolves.

He’s been cheated and abused, exploited by bosses in the hospitality and construction industries, and never fully reintegrated to the human tribe.

Rodríguez is one of the few documented cases in the world of a child being raised by animals away from humans. »
