We have heard a number of Jungle Boy stories like Tarzan and Mowgli. They are just stories for us that have nothing to do in reality. However, there have been real cases of children who have lived and even grown up with animals. In the same case, Casey Hathaway who is a 3 years old boy went missing one day in the woods of eastern North Carolina.
Like any other family, his family was also worried about him. He was playing with other kids in his grandmother’s backyard in when he got disappeared suddenly and was reported to have been missing since. His family members searched the woods behind her home for 45 minutes. Then the grandmother called 911.
Miraculously, Casey was found by the search team after they followed the sounds of his cries and found the child stuck in thorn bushes in Craven County, just a quarter mile from where he was last seen. His family was on cloud 9, after seeing their son all right.
In a Facebook post, which has now removed, Casey’s aunt, Breanna Hathaway stated “Casey is healthy, smiling, and talking. He said he hung out with a bear for two days God sent him a friend to keep him safe.”
But what caught the attention was Casey’s statement. According to 3 years old Casey, he spent time with a bear while he was lost in the woods. Casey who is recuperating in the hospital, told police and his parents he spent his two days in the woods hanging out with a bear.
Well, the police is investigating the case to find out what exactly happened on that day!
