41a:1מ״א א:א׳

צריך דעת בעלים - ואם לא הודיעם חייב באחריותם אם מת או נגנב דמדשקליה קם ליה ברשותיה והשבה בלא ידיעה לאו השבה היא:

One needs the knowledge of the owners - and if he [the shomer] did not inform them he is obligated to be responsible for them if it died or was stolen, because from when he took it [the sheep or the sela] it enters his ownership and an act of returning it without knowledge of the owners is not [considered] an act of returning.
