A BIT MORE
1. If a man is Rove'a an animal, he is Chayav even if the Revi'ah was she'Lo k'Darkah. Similarly, if a woman has relations with an animal, she is Chayav even if the Bi'ah was she'Lo k'Darkah.
2. A person who does Ha'arah with any of the Arayos, with a Zachor, or with an animal is Chayav.
3. It is impossible for a person to do Ha'arah with himself unless he is Meshamesh Mes; thus, the Din in such a case hinges on the general dispute regarding whether a person is Chayav if he is Meshamesh Mes with an Ervah. According to the opinion that Meshamesh Mes with Arayos is always Patur, a person who does Ha'arah with himself is Patur as well. However, according to the opinion that Meshamesh Mes with Arayos is Chayav, he will be Chayav for two violations, since he is both the Shochev and the Nishkav.
4. The animal is put to death because of Takalah, i.e., it caused a person to be put to death, since even non-Jews are Chayav Misah for Arayos. Takalah is one of two reasons the Mishnah gives for the fact than an animal is put to death as a result of a Revi'ah, and even though the other reason, Kalon (disgrace), is not applicable in this case, Takalah alone is enough of a reason for the animal to be put to death.
5. Even though an animal is put to death if a non-Jew has relations with it, it is not put to death if a non-Jew worships it as an Avodah Zarah. Abaye explains that the difference is that there is a greater Kalon when an animal is Nirva than when it is worshipped as an Avodah Zarah. Rava explains that an animal which is Nirva derives enjoyment from the Aveirah, while an animal that is worshipped does not derive any pleasure from the Aveirah.
6. An Asheirah tree is burned because it caused the person who worshipped it to incur the death penalty. An animal which was worshipped, however, is not put to death because it is a living creature and the Torah has mercy on it.
7. It is a Safek if an animal is put to death if there is Kalon but there is no Takalah. When a Yisrael is Rove'a an animal b'Shogeg, it is a Kalon, but it is not a Takalah since the Yisrael is not Chayav Misah. Consequently, it is a Safek if the animal should be put to death.
8. Once a girl is three years old, her Bi'ah is considered a full-fledged Bi'ah with regard to all Dinim in the Torah. Consequently, if her father allows a man to be Mekadesh her with Bi'ah, she is considered Mekudeshes; her Yavam can be Koneh her with Bi'ah; if the father accepted Kidushin on her behalf and another man is Bo'el her, he is Chayav for Eishes Ish; and if one of the Arayos is Bo'el her, they are Chayav Misah.
9. If a nine-year-old boy is Bo'el his Yevamah, he is Koneh her. However, once he has been Koneh his Yevamah, he is unable to give her a Get until he becomes a Gadol. This is because the Yibum is a continuation of the Kidushin that were performed by his deceased brother, who was a Gadol at the time, and a Katan cannot give a Get that will terminate the Kidushin of a Gadol.
