Feral is derived from a Latin word Fera, which means a wild beast. Feral is a state of group of plants or animals, where they currently live in a wild environment after being cultivated or domesticated. The domestication of animals dates back to 10,000 BC when sheep were used in the Middle East as the main source of food and wool. Later, the domestication of dogs started as they were considered as a source of security. Barley, wheat, lentils and various types of peas were the first plants to be domesticated by human beings.

Wild is a broad term that has different meanings, yet it is mostly referred to wilderness and wild animals. It is a state when a species of animals are found in the natural environment. In addition to that, the natural environment itself is usually called wild. Generally, the first image that comes to mind about the term wild is the jungle or forest but the meaning should never be limited to that. In fact, the word wild represents all those places where an undomesticated species can be found.
