Halocho #1497 - Let the animals eat

We learnt yesterday that while an animal is working with food, one is not allowed to muzzle it.

If the animal cannot eat the food because it's thirsty, one has to provide it with water, so that it can eat.

If the food in question is harmful (or dangerous) for the animal, then one can muzzle it, so as to prevent it getting harmed. One does not have to provide it with alternate food, if it's not feeding time.
