10 Famous Weird Pets in History

King George I’s “human pet”

This is a strange one. In 1725, Great Britain’s King George I found an abandoned child living in German woods. Given the name “Peter the Wild Boy,” the child couldn’t be taught to speak and walked on all fours. The fascinated king brought Peter to Kensington Palace, where he remained for the rest of his life known as George I’s “human pet.”
