Bava Kamma 79: How Much Chutzpah? Ignoring God vs. Ignoring People

How a thief can take formal possession of an animal even while on the owner’s property, depending on when the thief leaves that property, for example. Plus, a discussion of why the ganav is treated more stringently than a gazlan is. Also, a new mishnah: specific animals that were not allowed to be raised in the land of Israel. Including specific details of sheep, goats, chickens, and dogs, among other small(ish) animals, including what may be the original leash law.
