From Tom Hernandez:
(1918) Wild Boy from Siberia Is Harmless 7-Year-Old - Chicago, July 8 -
"Captured in Siberia - the only real wild boy in captivity" - that has been the cry before a circus tent at a local amusement park here and the nickels have rolled in. When his "trainer" spoke to him the "wild boy" would snap and bark and jump around to give the curious something for their money.
