0011110: Catch Live Land Animal/R causes trapper to run around food stockpile
My trapper is also a woodcutter. He is currently running around my food stockpile, trying to catch vermin even though there are absolutely none there.
He once put it down in an animal stockpile to get a drink from a river, even though I have booze. Then he picked it back up, and resumed running around the food stockpile.
Make animal trap, then set a woodcutter to trapping labor. Watch as he runs around in the food stockpile trying to catch nonexistent vermin.
I don't know if he might run around other indoor stockpiles too.
animal traps, wood cutter

Why do you believe that the vermin are non-existent? It is normal for vermin to blink in and out of view; the actual populations are tracked in the background (viewable with DFHack).

No. I have tried for about thirty minutes to find a vermin on-screen where he is running around. Nothing at all.

Also no Dfhack.

Yeah. I deleted the world.
