While a lion can be trained during their cub years by professional trainers, it isn’t domesticated specie and can never be tamed because of the potential for aggression.
Since they’re still genetically wild, their taming will never pass down to their offspring. The aggression of a tamed animal can be far more unpredictable and dangerous.
Domestic animals acquire tolerance toward humans through regulatory changes of specific genes.
Lion taming starts with an animal breaker that teaches lions to tolerate humans, recognize the breaker’s voice, and respond to commands.
Tragic attacks might paint lions as scary animals. But, it simply shows how unhappy, stressed and angry they are to live in unnatural conditions.
The Cheetah in captivity for over 5,000 years has been considered the most effortless exotic cat to tame.
Somewhere along the way, cats decided to become our friends, something lions never did, but we managed to find a way to deny their choice to be free.
