Animals That Can Be Tamed

Taming Wild Animals

Taming in-game is where you'll be able to make a bond with animals that are in the wild. Once an animal is tamed, it will treat you as its master.

We would recommend that you build a pen/den first before you start taming wild animals as they will attack even after you give them food.
