Chapter 1, Mishna 2
At what point does dead ox get appraised to determine who owns it? Is paid bailee responsible if animal in his care is attacked by wild beast? How can thief pay restitution to victim if he has no money? What if bailee entrusts animal to another bailee and animal is harmed? Can creditor take Canaanite slave? Can creditor seize assets from orphaned heirs? Do slaves have the same legal status as movable property? What about land? What happens to offerings of lesser sanctity, if misappropriated or damaged while still in possession of their owners?
