Ehhhn, I would be leery of this too-they are large and probably dangerous animals-domestication doesn't happen overnight, and unless there has been a concerted effort to shrink their flight-distance, it's more a subject of random walks and who has or hasn't been put down for chewing off the neighbor kid's head. It's like having a tiger for a pet-even if it was bred from captive stock for five generations, that's still a tiger, and still fundamentally a wild animal. I'm not ruling out something like the Siberian fox program, I just don't think that's terribly in character for Korra.

Even if they don't intend to, they could do a lot of damage, especially to children and the elderly. And then there is the cost of feeding them-nothing to sneeze at since they may weigh more than the rest of the igloo combined and likely turn up their noses at stewed sea-prunes. I'm not saying it can't be done. I'm just saying that it sounds like a lot of trouble.
