A BIT MORE
1. We are not concerned for the possibility of a Tereifah, because a Yisrael would not have sold a Tereifah to the Nochri in order to sell it in a shop.
2. We are concerned that the Kosher meat was exchanged with non-Kosher meat. Even in a place where all the butchers are Yisraelim, there is a concern that a raven switched it for a non-Kosher piece of meat that it brought from a distant place.
3. Although most of the stores are Kosher, since he bought the meat in the place where it is sold, it is regarded as "Kavu'a." Every case of "Kavu'a" is treated like a fifty-fifty Safek and is forbidden.
4. Since the majority of the shops are Kosher, the piece of meat is permitted. However, it is permitted only if it was found in the hands of a Nochri, because otherwise it is meat that was left unsupervised, which is forbidden.
5. However, it may be eaten only if the finder saw a person drop it from a distance and he does not know if that person is Jewish. Otherwise, it is meat that was left unsupervised, which is forbidden.
6. Since they were thrown away without being cut up, we may assume that they are from a Neveilah.
7. According to Rav, it is a Safek, and therefore they may not be eaten, but there is no Chiyuv Malkus for eating them.
8. There is no concern that the meat was exchanged, since the meat can be identified.
9. The Torah's prohibition against using an omen applies only if one acts on the basis of the omen, like Eliezer and Shaul.
10. It is a sign that he will continue to have success.
11. The cord is an identifying mark, and therefore we are not concerned that the meat was exchanged.
12. Even if the meat does not have an identifying mark, it is permitted if he recognizes it.
