240 - THE LAW OF DAMAGE CAUSED BY A BEAST


Exodus 22:4-5 -- 4 “If the theft is certainly found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he shall restore double. 5 If a man causes a field or vineyard to be grazed, and lets loose his animal, and it feeds in another man's field, he shall make restitution from the best of his own field and the best of his own vineyard.”

“No compensation is enforced for damage caused by the mouth or the foot of an animal in a public thoroughfare; because this cannot be guarded against, and the damage caused there is not very large. Those who place their things in a public place are themselves guilty of neglect, and expose their property to injury. But compensation is given for damage caused to the property of a person in his own field by the tooth or the foot of an animal.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 40
