Anyone see this story about the woman raised by a troop of monkeys in the jungle?

Apparently, she was dumped and left for dead in the jungle by kidnappers, but was eventually taken in by a troop of Capuchin monkeys. She was then found by hunters who sold her to a brothel in exchange for a parrot!
She escaped and after leading a gang of pick-pockets, being a slave to a crime lord and various gun fights, car bombs and murder attempts, she was taken in as a maid by a family that relocated to England where she now lives.

Experts have questioned the authenticity of her story because of the huge distances that Capuchin monkeys cover in a day that would be nigh on impossible for a toddler to keep up, and she would have been too big to be carried.

What do you think? BS or what?

I was certain I saw this story on here yesterday, but a search turned up zilch.

I was reading about it on forteantimes.com

Sounds like she might be making it up for attention. They would have sold her organs long ago after her work at the brothel.

For attention yes, but probably even more for the big fat bank account after the book sales and ensuing film.

Lol. My dad did the same. You're fortunate to still have your dad around. Enjoy the playful banter mon ami. I don't have that luxury anymore, but the memories are priceless
