    Default What will you do about this funny case?

    A donkey at an Algerian market ate the money of a man who came to buy him, making the unfortunate buyer and the owner wonder who the animal belongs to, an Algerian newspaper reported.

    Al Shuruk al Yawmi, a newspaper published in the northern Algerian town of Tizi Ouzou, said the customer and the seller were traditionally bargaining for price for too long and failed to notice the donkey consuming the stack of banknotes meant as a payment for him.

    Neither the Tizi Ouzou district court nor the city court were able to make a ruling that would satisfy both parties, so the case was passed on to the Algerian Supreme Court in the hope that it will resolve the bitter dispute.

    Then what's your idea about this case?

    the buyer should sue the owner for not keeping his donkey under control, then the buyer could buy the donkey with the money he got from the seller

    it belongs to the buyer. whether the transaction was finalized or not when this happened is irrelevant

    edit> that being said the buyer may be partly responsible for leaving the wad of notes unattended
    guess it also depends where he left the notes, outside or within the owner's premises
    bummer this is more complicated than I thought..



    ultimately it's the donkey's fault

    cut the donkey in half, problem solved

    The owner of the donkey. He did not maintain control of his property. No money exchanged hands. The donkey still belongs to the seller and is therefore responsible for the destruction of the buyer's property. IMHO
