What would happen if?

I woke up this morning with this thought, and don't think I'm some sort of sick fuck for thinking this. What would happen if a baby was to be abandoned in the jungle, and got raised by some gorillas? Something like this has happened before, with a child being raised by wolves (, I would wonder if the child would be capable of surviving in one of these kind of situations? If only this experiment would be actually doable in the world today. With IRB's (Institutional Review Boards) strict rulings for ethics, there is no way anything of this nature could be approved, and no one would be willing to give up their child for this study. But I bet the child would be able to develop fairly well, and then after the experiment, they would be able to almost successfully transition the child into the normal world. If they can teach lower primates how to use sign language, I feel they would be able to have a child who was raised by apes learn how to act more human then many would think.

Like I said, don't think I'm some sick fuck for this. I can't help what I started thinking when I woke up this morning.
