48. Exceptions from liability.

A person is not liable for any damage1 caused which would otherwise be the subject of strict liability2 if it is due wholly to the fault3 of the person suffering it4, nor for any damage suffered by a person who has voluntarily accepted the risk of its happening5. However, a person employed as a servant by a keeper of an animal who incurs a risk incidental to his employment is not to be treated as accepting it voluntarily6.

Where a trespasser on any premises or structure suffers damage caused by any animal kept thereon, there will be no strict liability
