0005125: guilty party accusing non-sentients of a crime
A vampire disguised as an immigrant drained one of my dwarves of all their blood whilst in a crowded room, with many witnesses. Checking the justice screen, 10 witnesses came forward. 9 of those accused the same dwarf (let's call him Urist). Urist himself was the 10th "witness" and tried to accuse another member of the fortress of the crime. All very cool.

But Urist, for some reason, chose to accuse a farm animal - in this case a goose - of the crime.
I imagine this will come down to dumb luck.
The animal that Urist accused of the crime was not even in the same room at the time of the crime. All my farm animals had been put out to pasture, and there were multiple dwarves in the area who could have been accused instead.

This is a case of Too Stupid To (un)Live.

Though I must confess, a vampiric goose would be awesome.

Well, DF is supposed to be able to handle weird mods... maybe this is in case someone mods a vampire syndrome for livestock? Still, you'd think they'd check if such a syndrome existed before accusing animals.

They'll exercise a bit more judgment for next time!
