Can or have African elephants be domesticated?
Sort of. Elephants in Asia have been domesticated to harvest teak on plantations Burma and other countries in that area. No African elephants have been domesticated persay, but a handful have created strong bonds with humans and can be handled. It is possible to domesticate African elephants, but no one has really tried as there is no need and they are seen as more wild.
