confirming this exists in 31.25, my dwarves are taking something from a pasture to a chain and the exact same dwarf is immediately taking it from the chain back to the pasture.

Also see this issue in .31.25 [edit] The problem can be reproduced as follows:

1: assign an animal to a pasture
2: assign the same animal to a built restraint
3: check the pasture assignment information; note '+' remains next to animal.

The reverse process, first assigning to a restraint, then to a pasture, appears to work correctly, i.e. the animal gets unassigned from the restraint.

Saves might be helpful for this one.

Well, the problem is 100% reproducable:

1. assign animal A to pasture
2. assign animal A to chain/rope

-> endless hauling between pasture and chain starts

But here's your save: [^]

All you need to do is embark with a rope and a dog. Assign the dog to a pasture in one place, let it get hauled there, then chain it somewhere outside the pasture, and now just sit back and watch. The dog will repeatedly get hauled from one to the other, with a bit of a wait in-between.

Seeing this bug report helped me figure out why it was happening at my fort. Once I removed the dog from the pasture (which I had assumed was automatic when I assigned it to a restraint, especially since it gets a restraint marker in the pasture list) they finally stopped hauling it back and forth.

The root problem here, of course, is that assigning a creature to a restraint does not unassign it from an activity zone (either a pen/pasture OR a pit/pond).

Other combinations seem to work properly, though - assigning to a cage removes assignments from restraints/zones, and assigning to a zone removes assignments from restraints/cages.

Relating to 0000498 for cage/pit combo. Hostility may be an overriding factor, but they are still trying to re-cage him after the creature was marked for pitting.

This still occurs in 40.13. Assigning to a chain does not remove pasture assignment, resulting in the animal being repeatedly shuttled between pasture and chain.

Still in 40.24.

I was wondering why it takes so long to chain selected bunny to newly made trap to lure attackers to that area: I have found once it is chained there another dwarf is tasked to return that animal back to its pen. After unassigning given animal from given pen it stays chained.

Confirming this issue is in 40.24. I mean if you want a pampered dog that is being taken for walks all day you could keep it in.
