There has been a long standing question: How did dogs (closely related to wolves) become domesticated? There is a theory that humans had little to do with it. A population of wolves domesticated themselves. That is, by feeding on human leftovers, and over generations gradually loosing their fear of humans (and human loosing their fear of them) they came closer and closer until they gradually developed the traits of dogs–and became dogs. Now, the same thing seems to be occurring with foxes. Please comment.
