Bava Kamma 34 - Half The Loss (Torts)

"And if a man's ox shall push the ox of his fellow, and it dies, they shall sell the live ox and divide its money, and the dead one, too, they shall divide." What are the precise circumstances?

In the case of one ox worth two hundred zuz that gored another ox worth two hundred and the carcass is worth fifty, one owner takes half of the live ox and half of the dead one, and so does the other. Thus, each party suffers half the loss, and the damager can pay the carcass as a partial payment.
