0006891: Pulped body parts can be used for attacking and flying (and walking?)
If you manage to get an enemy to do enough damage to a body part, it explodes or collapses into gore. But then when you go to attack, apparently that limb is still usable.

I'm not sure if you fall down if this happens to a foot or anything (yet), but that is a troubling sign which would make me believe you won't fall.
No tags attached.

This is still an issue in 40.19. I just pulped both wings on a Kestrel. After it finally regained consciousness, it flew away. In the process of finding another bird to maim so I can post a save.

UPDATE: Here's the file:

There are two unconscious ravens next to my character. The one to the north has a crushed wing, the one to the south has a pulped wing. If you pass enough time to let them wake back up, and then startle them, they will both fly away as if their wings were perfectly fine.
