Summary0001797: Dwarves play tug of war with caged animals marked for slaughter
DescriptionI had a funny situation wherein a dwarf kept stealing an animal from my butcher and dragging it back to its cage when my butcher tried to lead the animal to the butchers shop to butcher it. The butcher managed to get the animal to the butchers shop in the end, but it took fifteen minutes for him to move an animal roughly fifteen tiles down a corridor.
Steps To ReproduceThis is a random bug because it's all about timing - you need a dwarf to be leading an animal to the butchers, and a dwarf who, right at that moment, moves to the next task on his list, to cage an animal wandering around the fort. The second dwarf needs to be able to get to the butcher and start a tug of war with him over the animal before it gets to the butchers shop as well.

At least in previous versions, the instant the "Slaughter an Animal" job is added to a butcher's shop, the corresponding animal is unassigned from its current cage/restraint; if you reassign it at this point, this sort of thing can end up happening.

Yeah, this is a really old one:

I expect 0000410 is related to this one.

In 0.31.19 the dwarves will also fight over animals that are pastured instead of caged, and you don't even need a good timing for that. I have to remove my cows from the pasture if I want to get them butchered or milked. Same goes with sheep which I'm trying to get sheared.

Catyrpelius, that was 0003959 and it is fixed for 31.20.
