Are you referring to scientific sense or the everyday English sense of the word 'domestication` and `tame`?

Tame is such a vague word to describe such. It may be tame based on it`s dependence, but it may have feral tendencies as it may revert to it`s natural ways. Bulls are considered domesticated but also display feral tendencies as well.
