I want to know a single word that conveys this meaning "one who tames wild animals".
As simple as that.
If they were not wild animals, they would not need to be tamed in the first place, perhaps. As such, a tamer tames (trains) only wild animals (and not domesticated ones).
For others, we have trainer.
There is also the expression:
to break an animal,
typically used with horses. As in,
I break horses.
By extension, you could refer to this person as a breaker of horses.
