    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?

    IMO I think the donkey should stay with the owner and the owner pays the buyer the money. Since both parties didn't mean for this to happen, it's an accident. The owner didn't receive any payment, so by giving the donkey to the buyer, it won't be fair. The fair thing to do is for the owner to pay the buyer back the money, since it's him and his donkey's fault, him for not taking care of his donkey.

    think either the owner pays the customer the money eaten by the donkey back and keep him because the donkey was during the conversation still in his ownership and he was responsable or he gives the donkey away to the customer to replace the destroyed money:.

    Shouldn't the owner of the donkey be held responsible for any damages the donkey does? If the donkey does damage, the owner must pay reparations. In this case the donkey ate somebody's money. Of course, it's the buyer's fault for leaving the money unattended, so the donkey's owner should pay back the full sum, but he should still pay some of it. Or hand over the donkey.

    Or, you know, king Solomon's solution seems best at the moment.
