Ranson v Kitner, 31 Ill.App. 241 (Ill.Ct.App. 1889).

Facts:

Kitner shot Ranson’s dog, thinking that it was a wolf.

Issue(s):

Did the Kitner's mistake denote that no tort had occurred?

Ratio:

Liability for damages, caused by a person's own mistaken understanding of the facts, exists regardless of whether that person acted in good faith.
