Feral children

Feral children are children that have had very little (if any) human contact during their formative years. The result is devastating and far reaching. The idea and effects of this sort of abuse is considered so horrible that many people do not believe that feral children exist; or there are those that mock or give false information about this sad phenomenon. Be assured that true cases have been documented, and have been scientifically researched.
can you tell me what you think about feral children. How does this occur? How would you describe feral children according to one of the conditioning/learning theories so far? How does this relate to Harlow's research?
