The Yerushalmi is discussing the issue of causing a mum in kodashim, and whether it is permissible to blood let an animal of kodashim lest one may be meitil mum.
The Gemara cites a baraisa in the name of R’ Shimon that says that one can let blood from an animal of kodashim even with the express intention of casing a mum!
R’ Boon bar Chiya says that this baraisa concerns kodashim that one is liable to replace if they are lost or blemished (she’chayav b’achrayusan).
The question is, so what?
The Meleches Shlomo explains that this Gemara follows the opinion that kodashim she’chayav b’achrayusan are mammon hedyot (“owned” by the people who designated them – this is relevant to the sugyah at the beginning of Merubeh in Bava Kamma as to whether thete is pi shnayim by geneivah of kodashim – there is a very important Reb Chaim in the stencils on this, and the difference between kodshei mizbei’ach and kodshei bedek ha’bayis) are the property of their owners, and, that therefroe, the prohibition of introducing a blemish to kodashim does not apply to them! (The owners will have to replace them anyway.)
