Summary0003426: Bare-hands strangulation results in bloodfest
DescriptionWhen strangling of any form with even the weakest of wrastlers, a single successful strangulation always results in "His/Her throat is broken open. His/Her throat is gushing <race> blood."

I have noted other tickets talking about this as if it is common place, and none reporting it as a problem. Perhaps this is a feature not a bug?

It seems that if I were to put someone into a choke hold and apply some light pressure, a gash shant open from the gullet spraying blood all over.

However, I have noticed that I could grab someone by the throat with a bladed weapon; "strangulation" by way of blade certainly could result in this wonderful river of blood.
Steps To ReproduceCreate two equal humanoids in Arena mode with no armor or weapons and base skills. Possess one, wrestle, grab throat (with whatever body part seems convenient), choke hold, strangle exactly one time. View other creature's status, especially the gashed open neck region and the steady flow of blood from it.
Additional InformationI had a Grand Master wrestler with superhuman strength when I first noticed this. I just thought I was a little too good at squeezing until I tested it in the Arena...

Still happens athough if you get a godly strong creature strangulation will instantly rip the neck open and cause bleeding out withen a few turns.

I mean it says "The bogeyman strangules you, tearing apart the throats skin!"

Fixed in 0.40.02. I tried a bronze colossus strangling a kobold and the throat stayed intact. Only very small creatures like rabbits get their throat torn from strangulation.
