0010279: Undead, reanimated, invulnerable sheared hair freezes dwarves
Sheared reanimated hair (wool, etc) is invulnerable, it won't attack the dwarves and it can't be attacked, but it will interrupt jobs: the affected dwarves and all those passing on an adjacent tile will freeze there, won't move or do anything at all and will eventually die of dehydration.
1. Embark on an evil, reanimating biome and take grazing animals with you.
2. Shear animal.
3. Enjoy.
I picked combat for lack of a better category, but this looks like an AI-combat-creature tag-whatever else issue.
No tags attached.

Addendum: skin can behave the same way.

Yes, it's a well known bug which is reported again from time to time. See e.g. 0000787 and 0005356.

Neither the animated hair nor the dwarves are attacking (producing combat reports)?
2017-08-31 08:05   
No, they're just standing there. The dwarves' profile says "no job".

I don't have that old save at hand anymore, but I'll upload a new one.
