lieutenant-governor of United Provinces a well-known big-game hunter friend of the legendary hunter-conservationist Jim Corbett and one of the key drivers behind the establishment of Hailey National Park in 1936 (better known today as the Corbett National Park) has also referred to his experiences with Sanichar in his book Jungle Trails in Northern shlf1314(1938) Sanichar was the only known wolf-boy who survived into adulthood and died due to tuberculosis in 1895 Despite more than 20 years of efforts at the orphanage nobody could get him to speak but they did manage to train him to wear clothes and eat cooked food Ball lists the story of another forgotten wolf-boy who was also brought to the Sekandra orphanage “A perfect wild animal from every point of view” according to the then superintendent of the orphanage the boy had been brought scarred and wounded on March 5 1872 after having been smoked out of a wolf den by hunters in “Mynepuri” (present day Mainpuri UP) At this time Sanichar had already been living at the orphanage for five years Like all other previous wolf-boys he uttered nothing “save a melancholy whine like that made by young (wolf) cubs” This younger wolf-boy seemed to have developed a strange bond with Sanichar Unfortunately the Mynepuri wolf-boy didn’t survive for long and after a couple of failed attempts to run back into the nearby forests he died four months after his arrival Two other cases were reported elsewhere one from Shahjahanpur (c 1858) attested to by two different military officers and yet another case from Sultanpur (c 1860-61) Beyond Oudh a few cases of wolf-boys cropped up in Madhya Pradesh One such hitherto unrecorded case was that of a wolf-boy caught at a village called “Sat-bowrie” (Seven wells) between Jabalpur and Nagpur sometime in mid to late 19th century as narrated by Mervyn A Smith in his book Sport and Adventure in the shlf1314n Jungle (1904) This wolf-child named Seaall because of his jackal-like cries — around 10 years of age — was assumed to have turned man-eater along with the she-wolf that had nurtured him over the years The she-wolf who made the kills was eventually tracked and shot while the boy was captured a couple of days later However this account is peculiar in more ways than one because the author asserted that this wolf-child was “dog-like intelligent” and while he himself didn’t see him speak he was later informed that over time the boy had picked up a few Gondi words from his “keeper” This child was eventually sent to “a missionary in the north-west” by Lieutenant Cumberledge who had overseen the entire operation “I have reason to believe that he was the original of Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli” concluded Smith The Curious Absence of a Wolf-man One may well wonder why it was almost always boys aged between eight and 12 years of age and not a single case of a “wolf-man” that was reported Sleeman first observed this peculiarity and offers an explanation He reasoned that “after a time they either die from living exclusively on animal food before they attain the age of manhood or are destroyed by the wolves themselves or other beasts of prey in the jungles from whom they are unable to escape…”Moreover the boy’s “wolf-parents” who nurtured him would die in a few years — wolves have an average lifespan of just six-eight years in the wild — and other wolves might then kill and eat the boy Finally according to Sleeman it was Mowgli’s mortal enemy Shere Khan who could have accounted for the short lifespan of such boys Tigers which used to be plentiful in these provinces back then would easily kill any animal — especially a “wolf-boy” who wasn’t as fast as the others But why were no such kills recorded Sleeman writes “If the dead body of such a boy were found anywhere in jungles or on the plains it would excite little interest where dead bodies are so often found exposed and so soon eaten by dogs jackals vultures etc…” Oudh: Wolf-children Country Why did most of these cases occur in Oudh The general consensus was that Oudh was the most formidable stronghold of wolves in shlf1314 at the time Moreover due to the incredibly high rate of human fatalities recorded here in the mid-19th century (hovering around 150 reported cases per year most of them children) some opined that the area was inhabited by a race of man-eating wolves peculiar to this province As a result thousands of wolves were “destroyed” over a five-year period beginning 1867 to put an end to what the officials perceived was the “wolf menace” With the decline in wolf numbers by 1872 the cases of wolf-children from Oudh abruptly stopped and not a single credible case of wolf-children was ever recorded again from this province Why Would a Wolf Rear a Human Child Most believed it was a freak aberration in wolf behaviour However according to Smith the tribals of central shlf1314 had an incredulous answer to this puzzle “The natives declare that when a she-wolf has lost her whelps…she experiences a soreness at the teats from the accumulation of milk and she then generally steals a child The sucking of the child relieves the wolf and the infant is thenceforth regarded as a member of the family…” ************************************************************************************************************* The Myenpuri wolf-boy caught in 1872 is the last of the unexplained accounts of wolf-children in shlf1314; the few later accounts being too sketchy and unreliable The only case that does evoke some curiosity after this is that of Shamdeo or Bhaloo or Pascal as he was called a young boy captured by a farmer from that old haunt of wolves Sultanpur exactly 100 years after the Mynepuri episode However due to the limited reportage and his early death at Prem Nivas Lucknow — the home for the dying and destitute run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity — the story remains hazy and unreliable So there rest the tales of shlf1314’s Mowglies But
