Peter the Wild Boy - Died 1785 at an advanced age. '' Peter was found by King George 1st's huntsmen near Hamelin (the Pied Piper's sinister little town) in 1725. He was estimated to be between fifteen and sixteen, and could 'not articulate a single word'. His appearance was completely wild, with long, broken fingernails and he was apparently very hairy, which seems to be a theme with 'feral' children.'' en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_the_...
