MOSCOW, July 2 (RIA Novosti) - Police in Russia's Far East said that they have found another child that has been raised by dogs, Ren TV reported on Thursday.

The police found six-year-old Veronika Tishchenko in a house along with three adults in the town of Vyazemsky, Khabarovsk Territory, several days ago.

The girl was unable to speak and had spent her time playing with dogs in the yard of her home. Two years ago Veronika's brother was tragically killed by the yard dogs.

The girl has been transferred to a social rehabilitation center, where doctors found her to be in good health, but at the physical development stage of two and a half year old.

Veronika's mother is reported to have gone berry-picking in nearby forest several days ago, without saying when she would be back.

Earlier in June, police in Chita, East Siberia, brought charges against the parents of another dog girl, five-year-old Natasha. The girl, dubbed Mowgli by the press, is currently being treated in a social-rehabilitation centre.
