Ruling 2213

If a person gives an animal on hire for the purpose of carrying fragile goods, in the event that the animal slips or stampedes causing the load to break, the owner of the animal is not responsible for it. However, if the owner of the animal causes the animal to fall by beating it excessively or by doing something similar and this results in the goods breaking, then he is responsible.
