SANTIAGO - Jungle Book relives in Chili and particulary the boy Mowgli. A child that has been abondoned after his birth, succeeded in surviving for eleven year due to a pack of stray dogs. He was found in a cave where he had lived together with the dogs for all these years. A police spokesman said one of the bitches nourished the boy. After that he stayed alive by plundering trash cans for food together with the 15 dogs in the southern port Talcuano. "They were his family", the police spokesman said. When the dogchild, as the press named him, was discovered, he jumped into the ocean to escape the people. A policeman jumped after him to save him.
