The domestication of wild animals has long been a matter of discussion. Many people think that wild animals can be tamed by being kept in captivity, while others think that this practice is fruitless. The scale usually tilts toward the latter theory, since wild animals have natural instincts that don’t include being controlled by humans. But, this doesn’t mean that they can’t be tamed to the point where they act friendly toward humans.
