Here’s another case involving damages:
If Mr. Petlover’s dog, sheep, cow, or any other tame, domestic animal, injures Mr. Hurtz, he must pay him half the damage that the animal caused to Mr. Hurtz. But if his animal continues injuring people, Beis Din warns Mr. Petlover to take extra care in guarding his animal. If the animal still continues to cause damages, Mr. Petlover must pay for the entire damage.
On the other hand, if Mr. Petlover owns a wild, dangerous animal, like a lion, and that animal hurts someone, then he must pay for the full damage, even the first time. After all, even if he says he trained the lion so it shouldn’t hurt anyone, it’s still a wild animal – a lion is a lion and I’m not lyin’. Something awful was bound to happen!
