Domestication PP

Submitted by bpmccarthy on Sun, 11/17/2019 - 19:26

The domestication of animals for human use/companionship was a very long process. Since humans began forming civilizations and societies, many animals chose to stay close to human settlements to feed on food scraps that were left behind or carelessly placed. This recruited unwanted rodents to settlements that would not only eat people's food supplies, but bring disease with them. People started to notice that cats were very good at catching and killing bothersome rodents, and would entice them with food into living with or near them. Most domestication processes begin like this, with the animal in question providing a benefit for humans and in turn being rewarded with food or shelter. 



Overall really great informative paragrph. I think the the only thing I would suggest is to get rid of the "/" after the word use and just say "for human use or companionship"


Add also after but: "but bring disease with them."

The use of past tense in the first tense is slightly confusing as it may be argued that domestication of animals is continually occuring or still happening now. 

I would avoid the "/" in between use and companionship
