0006156: hunted animals not being butchered
having a problem where my hunters will kill animals and bring the remains to the refuse pile i have setup near my butcher shops, my butchers will not use the remains, i have about 60 butcher animal jobs setup through my manager but when they queue up it says needs unrotten butcherable nearby, i know there is an issue with certain corpses not being used for other reasons but this is the first time i have had corpses of animals that were hunted not be used
1. have hunter hunt
2. return kill to refuse pile
3. wait and see if butcher will butcher remains
No tags attached.

What kind of animals are being hunted? If they're small animals such as cavies or ducks, then they're probably too small to yield any usable meat and are thus being ignored by your butcher.

so far the bodies that i see it happen with the most are opossum

Peregrine falcons and opossums are both very small creatures - the former will never yield any meat (maximum body size is only 600), while the latter will only rarely yield any meat (maximum body size 3000, compared to cats which are 5000).

Looking further, this is a duplicate of 0000874.
