Taming these things at low level is no problem! A level 150 only takes 18 tranq arrows with a regular bow, and you can bola them, which helps hold them in place. Not to mention, they will eat the spoiled meat you don’t want, and can also be a powerful bodyguard for you until you get something stronger.
I don't know why the guy saying they're not affected by Bolas is at the top. I just hit a level 5 wild in the mountain area with a bola right in the legs and it froze in place perfectly, no issues. BOLAS WORK, BUT YOU HAVE TO HIT THE LEGS, THE THIN SKITTERY EASY TO MISS LEGS.
