0000964: Tame bears keep guzzling the fortress' booze
The announcement "A grizzly bear has guzzled some (prickle berry wine 25])!" pops up intermittently. The bears in question are all tame. The booze stocks don't seem to reduce when this happens so I think it just an erroneous announcement rather than a booze destruction issue. The bear is nowhere near any alcohol at the time nor are there any emtpty barrels near the bearafterwards.
This has only happened in one fortress but it was the only fortress I have seen with tame bears and it happens about once a year but when it happens it can be several times in quick succession. Try making a fortress with tame bears and wait a while and you might be able to reproduce this.
A number of animals have been changed in the raws adding the tags [PET] and [TRAINABLE] and deleting [EXOTIC_PET] where applicable. This includes the bears in question.

Just thought I would add that this applies to black bears in the same fortress and not just to grizzly bears

do you have the save file?

This is certainly related to the CURIOUSBEAST_GUZZLER tag. I don't know if it's a bug for the tame ones to go around doing that.

I have a the save of the fortress it happened in but there are no guranatees it will happen again. I can't get it until tomorrow anyway but if you think it would be useful I dont mind sending it
