>>544986 A lot of animals can be tamed. Elephants are one of those species, so are bears and lots of others.
Domesticated animals are different. They're born in captivity, bred in captivity and fairly docile and not much danger to their handlers.
People love to post that picture of zebras pulling a carriage, but zebras are tamed, not domesticated. They're cantankerous little shits as a rule. So are a lot of the other animals, such as bears. They almost always turn aggressive at a certain point even when tamed.
Compare this to, say, sheep. They grow quick, they don't require any special effort to tame and make peaceful, and they produce useful goods (wool, meat) right off the bat. They happily breed in captivity and live inside fenced enclosures. They barely care if humans are walking around.
Deer, on the other hand, will freak out if a human walk anywhere near. They'll kill themselves jumping against the side of a fenced enclosure if they don't just jump right over. They're a lot more work for a lot less gain. Yet they can be tamed.
Don't let anyone fool you. Humans have tamed every animal on the planet that can be and only a small, small fraction of those can be domesticated.
