On the flip side, we have to remember that ALL of our domesicated animals were once wild and we domesticated them, so why not zebras and the like (as long as people aren't being stupid and trying to have cute little cuddly tigers).
If we start keeping zebras like our ancestors kept horses, and we severely cull and eat all the mean ones like our ancestors did horses, then we could have them domesticated in a few hundred years. As of now, they are not domesticated. They will likely be ok while young, but very unreliable as adults.
Ok, I just now read the ad. If I could consistently get $7,500 for the colts, I would consider raising zebras, tame or not. Sounds like some big money to me.
