Domestication and Immuration

  • Keekok Lee


This chapter will examine the claim usually made that captive zoo animals are not domesticated animals or domesticants. It will critically explore the notion of domestication to determine whether or not there is a sense of domestication which may apply to zoo animals. If such a sense exists and can be identified, then this would strengthen the view already arrived at in the last three chapters that, unlike animals-in-the-wild which are the outcome of the processes of natural evolution, zoo animals are the products of human design, management and control.1
