If you're a parent and you feel doubt about your abilities, remember: at least you didn't sell your son to an itinerant goatherd. That's what happened to Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja, who was cut loose by his family at the age of seven. When the goatherd died a few years later, Pantoja decided to remain alone up in the Sierra Morena mountains of Spain, foraging for food. It wasn't long before he drew the attention of a wolf pack. After a few false starts, he gained their trust and started to spend much of his time with them. Pantoja was discovered by Spanish police at the age of 19, having lost most of his facility with language. He was handed over to nuns, who made him walk with a piece of wood in the back of his shirt to correct his forager's stoop, and now lives alone in a small house in Galicia.
