Audio by Dr. Michael Sokolow

If a man stole a sheep from the herd and put it back [there], and it subsequently died or was stolen, he would still be responsible for it. If the proprietor knew neither of the theft nor of the restoration, but counted the sheep and found [the herd] complete, [the thief would be] exempt [in regard to any subsequent mishap].  קמא 10.8
הגונב טלה מן העדר, והחזירו-- מת או נגנב, חייב באחריותו; ואם לא ידעו הבעלים בגניבתו ובחזירתו, ומנו את הצאן והיא שלמה-- פטור מלשלם
It is not right to buy either wool or milk or kids from the shepherds, nor wood nor fruits from those who are in charge of fruits. It is however permitted to buy from house-wives woollen goods in Judea, flaxen goods in Galilee or calves in Sharon, but in all these cases, if it was stipulated by them that the goods are to be hidden, it is forbidden [to buy them] eggs and hens may, however, be bought in all places.  קמא 10.9
אין לוקחין מן הרועים צמר וחלב וגדיים, ולא משומרי פירות עצים ופירות׃ אבל לוקחין מן הנשים כלי פשתן בגליל, ועגלים בשרון; וכולן שאמרו הטמן, אסור׃ ולוקחין ביצים ותרנגולין מכל מקום
