0001432: Elves sell you vermin in cages. Cages don't say that they are occupied by vermin.
I don't know, if the elves are suposed to sell you vermin, but eather this is the bug, or that they sell them in cages. And not properly named cages for that matter. It just says '*material* cage'. You have to select the cage description to see if there is vermin inside. That would be the other possible bug.
I just bought some tame worms, some squirrels and several birds ind cages.
Wait for the elf caravan to arrive and check the 'empty' cages they bring.
Elves, Holdover from 40d?, trade, vermin
