: : Although the phrase "raised by wolves" usually means uncivilized and without manners, my mother prefers the original meaning. As she always says, wolves have quite a good reputation for raising children, consider that Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus, twins who were raised by a she-wolf.

: Out of sheer interest, why provide a URL link that, if followed, leads to a site where student essays may be downloaded at various costs (!!!) ? It's bad enough treating this discussion web-board as a virtual advertising hoarding, but then to promote a website that encourages those in the educational system to avoid original thought and research in favour of just paying for someone else's 2nd hand outpourings? Shame on you.

Note also that the post accompanying the link to a term-paper mill added nothing of substance to my response to the query--that is, nothing likely to help the person who asked about "raised by wolves." Unoriginality is a consistent theme here.
