Having lived for most of her life in the Cambodian forests "jungle woman" has fled back to the wilds.

The 29-year-old disappeared in to the thick forests when she was just a little girl, in 2007 she was found and reunited with her family but struggled to adapt to society. Despite making some progress in recent months and without so much as a word she has now disappeared back in to the forests again.

"Rochom P'ngieng, now 29-years-old, first disappeared into thick hilly jungle in 1989 when she was a little girl."

I contemplate on doing the same thing sometimes. Why would she want to be submerged into a society with rules and ways of "living". Thats not how life should be lived. Living in the woods as a real animal would be incredible

Living in the woods as a real animal would be incredible But just think of all the benefits she's missing out on.... bank accounts, taxes, voting in Elections, shopping at the 'Mall,' a nice high-rise apartment maybe in the city, sitting in traffic-jams on the tarmac'd roads, nice ready to eat pre-packaged foods with additives,.........

A child of nature at one with her world. Leave her alone. Perfectly said I contemplate on doing the same thing sometimes. Why would she want to be submerged into a society with rules and ways of "living". Thats not how life should be lived. Living in the woods as a real animal would be incredible I think about doing it sometimes too LOL.

If she left her family, then obviously she prefers the traumas of the wild to the pressures of reintegration into modern society, rife with complex traumas of it's own. I agree, let her run free! I also think it's speculative at best to assume a child of eight couldn't possibly survive in the jungle. Why not? It certainly would seem unlikely to some, but survival instincts and primitive race memories would probably kick in. This is certainly not the first case like this in history. Perhaps animals played a benign role, and cared for her. That's not been unheard of, either. Actual documented ca... [More]

Sounds like she was utterly miserable trying to be "normal." No doubt she's happier this way. normal for who her or you.

Living in the woods as a real animal would be incredible That would be quaint but there's really nowhere to go. You used to be able to escape the march of imperialist sedation. Property lined and taxed, you cannot cover your tracks. I will grow my own vegetables on someone's woodlands one day though.

Maybe they should locate Tarzan. He can talk to animals. He could tell her to get a shower, put some clothes on, and quit crapping in the woods.
