Wild It is a term that is used with different meanings. As adjective , it can be about animal that has not been tamed and that, in general, lives free in nature.

For example: "An unidentified wild animal attacked the cattle and killed twenty-four cows", “My dream is to go on an African safari to see how wild lions live”, “I would not like to meet a wild beast in the middle of the jungle”.

Those plants that grow wild, without the human being involved in their cultivation and care, they also receive the qualification of wild: "For several months I was not coming to the field: I found the land full of wild plants", “In the forest it is possible to see wild plants more than two meters high”, "If you don't take care of the garden, it will soon be covered with wild herbs".

When the notion of wild is applied to a man , is linked to your brutal behavior and his lack of civility . On a scientific level, the idea of ​​wild was formerly used in the anthropology with reference to those peoples who lived differently from European civilization: however, over time, the concept was discarded because of its discriminatory nature.

Precisely we must also refer to what is known as a wild child, which is how you try to define that little one who has lived outside of society for much of his childhood, usually without having any contact with other human beings or being this minimum.

Throughout history there have been cases of this type of minors. Literally among the best known are figures such as Tarzan or Mogli, the protagonist of "The Jungle Book", who are raised in the jungle, surrounded by animals and, therefore, learn to behave, interrelate and communicate like those beings alive

However, in reality there have been different wild children, such as these:
-Víctor de Aveyron, who has been one of the most studied. He lived in the eighteenth century and was a preteen that hunters found naked and hunting in the forests of the French region of Aveyron.
-Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja. It is one of the few cases of small savages in Spain. As a child, his father sold it to a landowner who, in turn, bequeathed it as an assistant to an old farmer who lived alone and took refuge in a cave in the Sierra Morena area. When the old man died, the little boy, who was about seven years old, found himself alone and abandoned. A situation that led him to live with the wolves and thus spent many years, specifically eleven. His story is told in the movie “Entre lobos” (2010), directed by Gerardo Olivares and starring Manuel Camacho.

Today the idea of ​​savage appears in the colloquial language with reference to the people or the violent and cruel facts : "He's a savage: he hit his son with a hammer", "In a wild act, a skateboard tortured and killed three dogs", "I can't accept that a wild assassin like him is free".
