Summary0000858: Livestock strangely agressive.
DescriptionAfter my carpenter failed to build a wall on the haunted tundra, a werewolf got in. As expected, all the dogs charge and all the dwarfs scattered. Unexpectedly, the livestock joined in the headlong attack. The bull I can understand, although his wrestling maneuvers were a bit odd, as per [^] However, the cow and horses also attacked.

I seem to recall in previous versions benign livestock would flee from aggressive creatures, so I'm assuming this is not as intended.
Steps To ReproduceEmbark in an area with dangerous wildlife, bring some cows\horses. If they attack, your livestock will fight back aggressively, rather than flee.

I've had that occur as well. Who knew lambs were so dangerous? They also seem to break out into infighting every so often, but that actually makes some sense.

yeah - I've had my livestock do some minor wrestling moves with other creatures in my farm - probably like in real life rutting or something like that. Normally the do a few wrestling moves then get away, but one time a yak held a stranglehold on a lamb till it died.

Perhaps the animals were cornered, and in that case it'd be intentional/expected. But if they were on an open field, saw the werewolf, and jumped in, keep those horses and throw them in the military.

As all the morale system changed, this doesn't happen anymore.
