Where a misrepresentation1 innocently made has induced a person to enter into a contract in relation to an animal, he may be entitled to rescind it, the court having a discretion to order rescission or damages2. Further, a person guilty of an innocent misrepresentation is liable in damages for any loss resulting if he would have been so liable had he acted fraudulently, unless he proves that he had reasonable grounds for believing, and did believe, up to the time of the making of the contract, that the facts represented were true
