In the case of the appearance of the former owner of the animals after their transfer to the ownership of another person, the former owner shall have the right, if there are circumstances indicating the attachment of these animals to him or about the cruel or other mistreatment of the new owner, to demand their return on conditions determined by agreement with the new owner, and if the agreement is not reached - by the court.
