The difference in a wild animal and a feral animal is not that simple. Feral animals come from animals that were once domesticated. Domestication is a process that takes many generations of culling to remove wild traits and instincts. The wild animal may be tame as a juvenile, but he will revert to his wild tendencies as he matures.
