Summary0009061: Sharing squares with animals makes dwarves climb trees
DescriptionI was wondering why I kept having to cut my most valuable dwarves out of trees, when I discovered that they were climbing trees to avoid sharing a square with one of their assigned war dogs. Dwarves will move to avoid sharing a square with an animal, but if they are surrounded by other animals and there is a nearby tree, they will choose the one square that does not already have an animal in it, which is the one straight up.
Steps To ReproduceThe easiest way to replicate is to assign about a dozen dogs to a dwarf with no skill in woodcutting, then enable woodcutting and send the dwarf out to clear-cut a heavily wooded area. Since inexperienced woodcutters take a while to fell each tree, sooner or later the dwarf will be crowded by animals and then one will step into the same square, and the dwarf will evade the dog by climbing the tree.

I wasn't able to reproduce this issue. Are you sure you hadn't assigned any war-trained *flying* creatures (or flying pets) to the dwarf?

Only war dogs.
