Is anyone working on breeding harmless, miniature polar bears for the purpose of domestication yet?
>>
>>3111204
What's the actual going price?
>>
>>3111119
This, and they became more dog-like, with spotted fur and floppy ears
>>
>>3111232
>floppy ears
just inbreeding problems
>>
>>3111204
They're also not legal to own in a lot of states assuming in you're in the US. There's generally no legal distinction or exception for the domestic foxes, so if you can't own a wild ass fox in your state, you can't have one of them. Also domestic =/= good pet or "just like a dog, but cooler".

If I wanted to get a damn fennec I'd just get a fennec

Yup, over time if it were at the same level as dog breeding.
>>
>>3111730
put a support animal vest on it and no one will ever question your fox
>>
>>3111109
Probably, but why? Just because you think dogs are boring and you want to show off?
>>
>>3111109

Yes. The Russians have already domesticated red foxes.

Can and have.

>>3111109
No. They fucking stink.
>>
>domesticate a focks
>it just becomes dog 2.0
why bother
>>
>>3111218
Sometimes I think about how we never domesticated bears and it irks me. Imagine a cuddly docile house bear the size of a large dog
>>
>>3111114
I've got a few that are very close to pets. I feed them and they're shockingly cool with my presence.

People do that, it's not impossible. Just really expensive.
>>
>>3111730

Not even with special permit and government people stopping by every now and then? Why?
>>

The bearfood would be expensive.

what the fuck

>Why?
Rabies vaccine hasn't been proven effective on them mostly because they're not popular pets so there's no urgency in testing it. A pet that can't be vaccinated for rabies is illegal in a lot of places. There's also the problem of faggots like this one-
>>3114349
poaching foxes from the wild to keep and fuck illegally.
>>
>>3116432
It's the name of the species. Wild red foxes are red, but we've bred them to have all sorts of colors, mostly for fur farms. It's like wild rabbits are always uniform brown, but tame rabbits come in several coat patterns and colors.

foxes will piss all over everything and everywhere. even in your morning coffee.
>>
>>3114323
They've a wider diet so it could be a coin toss whether or not they'd be easy or expensive. I'd argue that the only guaranteed heavy financial hit would be the pre and post hibernation bulk.

>Rabies vaccine hasn't been proven effective on them
They got rid of rabies in middle europe by vaccinating wild foxes, but I guess to use that one privately is too expensive or there isn't the required amount of studies to back it up.
