He says they — the kids — were probably a little bit more advanced with sex, too. We were further ahead with everything. Much of the documentary centres on the antagonism between the sannyasins and the Wasco County locals. The sannyasins thought they were better than everyone else, and that comes over in the documentary. He thinks the series focuses too much on the conflict between sannyasins and rednecks.
We Are The Wild People
How does that happen? In fact, Noa had left by the time these events had taken place, although he did remember seeing the homeless people at the ashram, on the other side of a chainlink fence, on a visit back to see his father. Why would he know what was going on? He was a kid, and this was his life. But he noticed the increased tensions and power struggles and that there were more and more guns about the place.
In , Sheela pleaded guilty to attempted murder and electronic eavesdropping within the commune, as well as her part in the immigration fraud and poisoning incidents, and was given a prison term along with two other leaders. When, in , Waco happened, and the compound of cult leader David Koresh was stormed by the FBI , leading to 76 fatalities, it affected Noa profoundly. He suddenly realised that something like that could have happened to them. They had come back to Britain, the marriage was over; she was going to stay in Norfolk, his dad was returning to Oregon and Noa and his brother were given a choice.
He says it was a good thing he got out when he did. I imagine it was hard to assimilate back and a lot of them ended up deeper in that kind of fringe world. But he was good at fitting in, adapting. He said his Indian name was because his dad had farmed in India.

No mention of ashrams. There had been press reports about the sex cult, the guru with all the Rolls Royces. But he was way behind, and he was getting into trouble, not because he was rebellious but because he was finding it hard to exist in the real world. One day, the headmaster called a special assembly because there were some very dangerous people coming to town, a sex cult called the sannyasins. A warning video was shown, and guess what the opening shot was? Thankfully, because of his wild hair and the fact that it was taken a few years before, no one recognised him.
Four people were arrested and charged under a wildlife protection law. If we keep cutting habitats, this tiger utopia is going to come crashing down. The world has only about 4, tigers left in the wild. The report found that tiger populations had increased across India, with the highest number in Madhya Pradesh, a hot, shrubby state with more than cats. Apart from the camera traps, thousands of wildlife officials covered more than , miles on foot to collect dung samples and take photographs from thick green canopies.
He credited the rebound to closer cooperation between state governments and wildlife experts.

Other experts said the increase might relate to improved counting methods. It is spread through accidentally breathing in virus particles in dust from dry rodent urine or through contact with rodents or their droppings or nests. Early signs in people include fever, headache, muscle aches, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, dizziness, and chills. Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease that is spread to people by breathing in dust from pigeon or bat droppings.
Fungal spores are found in the environment, especially in areas with bird and bat droppings. Birds do not get sick from exposure to histoplasmosis. Very few people become infected with histoplasmosis. People who do become sick tend to develop pneumonia-like symptoms fever, chest pains, and a dry or nonproductive cough within 1—3 weeks after exposure. Infants, older people, and those with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to the fungus and might develop more serious illness.
People with weak immune systems should avoid activities such as disturbing material where there are bird or bat droppings, cleaning chicken coops, exploring caves, and cleaning, remodeling, or tearing down old buildings. Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease of humans and animals that is transmitted through contaminated water and urine or other body fluids from an infected animal.
The Leptospira spp. Though it is difficult to detect early stages of leptospirosis in animals, the disease can lead to kidney and liver failure if left untreated. People who become infected with leptospirosis might not have any symptoms of the disease. Others will have nonspecific flu-like symptoms fever, headache, chills, vomiting, rash within 2—7 days after exposure.
These symptoms usually resolve without medical treatment but can reappear and lead to more severe disease yellow skin and eyes, rash, kidney or liver failure, meningitis. Some ways to prevent leptospirosis from wildlife are to avoid contact with environments potentially contaminated with animal urine and to avoid swallowing water from lakes, rivers, or swamps while swimming. Lyme disease is a bacterial disease that affects humans and animals bitten by the Ixodes species of ticks. Rodents and other wildlife are reservoirs of the disease. Most infections occur from the nymphal-stage ticks, which are tiny and difficult to remove.
Flu-like symptoms quickly follow the rash. Lyme disease can be prevented by avoiding exposure to ticks, using a tick repellent, and by finding and removing ticks from your pets and your family as soon as possible after returning from a tick-infested area. Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus LCMV can be transmitted through the urine, droppings, saliva, or cage material of infected wild and domestic rodents, wild hogs, skunks, raccoons, and squirrels.
Infected animals may appear normal or show more significant signs, including weight loss, hunched posture, and ultimately death. Human infections with LCMV are rare. Symptoms are similar to those of the common flu fever, stiff neck, loss of appetite, muscle aches, headache, nausea, and vomiting and often occur 1—2 weeks after exposure. Mycobacterium marinum is a type of bacteria that causes disease in fish, reptiles, and amphibians.
It is spread to people and animals through contaminated aquarium water. All fish are susceptible to mycobacterium, but fresh water species seem to be most affected.
This disease is slow growing in fish. Affected fish may stop eating, lose their fins or scales, develop sores, or appear deformed. Though infection in humans is rare, people can become sick with mycobacteriosis after coming into contact with contaminated water through minor cuts and skin abrasions.
Skin lesions can leave long-lasting scars. Reduce the risk for mycobacterium by washing your hands after handling reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Plague is a rare bacterial disease that affects animals and humans and is spread by infected fleas. Rodents like mice, rats, prairie dogs, and squirrels can carry plague. Plague is found primarily in the western United States.
People and animals can be infected when they are bitten by infected fleas or when they handle blood or tissues of infected animals. Wild and domestic carnivores especially cats can also become infected by eating infected rodents. Cats usually have fever, weight loss, and loss of energy with enlarged glands. Wild rodents may or may not have any signs of disease.
People most often become infected with plague through flea bites or from contact with body fluids of infected animals. Hunters may be at increased risk. Bubonic plague is the most common form of plague that affects people.
Symptoms include a sudden onset of high fever, chills, headache, malaise, and swollen glands lymph nodes. The other two forms of plague, septicemic and pneumonic, cause more severe disease. Plague can be prevented by keeping fleas away from your pets and family and by wearing gloves while handling or skinning potentially infected animals.
Rabies, a fatal neurologic disease in animals and humans, is caused by a virus. The rabies virus can infect most mammals, including bats; bears; beavers; deer; wild canids such as fox and coyotes; and felids such as mountain lions and bobcats; raccoons; skunks; opossums; and other small mammals. Animals and people are most commonly infected through bites from rabid animals. Infected animals may have a variety of signs but most often have sudden behavioral changes and progressive paralysis.
Rabies can be prevented in some animals by vaccination. The first symptoms in humans can start days to months after exposure and include generalized weakness, fever, and headache. Within a few days symptoms will progress to confusion, anxiety, behavioral changes, and delirium. Once symptoms appear, it is almost always too late for treatment. Rat bite fever is a rare bacterial disease transmitted by bites or scratches from infected rodents. It can also be spread by exposure to contaminated water, food, or rodent urine. The disease is typically seen in rats.
Infected rats can carry the infection but appear healthy. However, other animals infected with rat-bite fever may develop arthritis, skin infections, pneumonia, and swollen lymph nodes. In people infected with rat-bite fever, signs range from flu-like symptoms and a rash to more severe infections of the joints, liver, heart, lungs, brain, and blood, if left untreated. Dogs show a variety of symptoms similar to those in humans, including fever, lameness, coughing, vomiting and diarrhea, and swelling of the face or extremities.
People who are infected with RMSF generally start getting sick 2—14 days after exposure. Symptoms may include fever, rash, headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and muscle pain. RMSF can develop into a serious illness if not promptly treated. Rocky Mountain spotted fever disease can be prevented by avoiding exposure to ticks, using a tick repellent, and by finding and removing ticks from your pets and your family as soon as possible after returning from a tick-infested area.
Salmonella spreads to people through contaminated food eggs and meat or contact with stool of certain animals, including wildlife.
