Scope note
Animals that have been tamed and live with or are cared for by humans; typically limited to animals that have been altered through selective breeding to modify the behavior and often the appearance of their wild ancestors, such as dogs, domestic cats, horses, and cattle. The term excludes wild species of animals cared for by humans in a zoo, park or other place, even if the animal has been bred and raised in captivity.
