Call of the wild

Bucharest - An abandoned boy in a Romanian orphanage is being suckled by a dog, the state news agency reported. The child yelps instead of talking, and he shares his food with the bitch. 'He kisses her with great affection and shares his canteen food with her,' the agency reported. The boy was seven when he was placed in an orphanage two years ago. Reuter
