Domestication of wild animals means that people take wild animals and keep them as pets or farm animals. Domestication is often used to mean taming an animal. It can also be used for plants grown as crops. After this is done for several generations, especially when we breed them selectively, the domesticated population begins to show distinct genetic differences from the wild forms. This could eventually lead to new species.
