Stop Believing There Are Feral People in National Parks

Recently, we’ve seen an increase in stories about feral people in national parks. We can thank TikTok and other social media channels for circulating these tales.

Unfortunately, many people become very gullible when they read or see something on the internet. So, it may be time to stop believing that there are feral people in national parks.

The term “feral” is often used to reference something or someone considered “wild.” As a result, feral people spend most of their lives isolated from human contact living in the wild.

Despite the viral videos you may see circulating the internet, there’s no evidence of feral people in national parks.
