0010162: Animals bought from caravan don't show up on animals list or on pen/pasture screen
I have bought several animals from a human caravan. They were hauled in their cages to my animal stockpile, and there they have remained, I can't pen/pasture them, so I can't take them out of their cages. Some will starve to death without grass.
See save game at http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=12766 [^] for an example of this.

Same issue with an elven caravan and with a dwarven caravan. Some animals bought from the merchants are missing from the units list, from the status>animals screen, from the pasture list, and from other cages list. They are nowhere to be found, just when looking inside the cages. And when the cage is built and deconstructed the animals vanish leaving no body.

When looking into the animal cages, the animals appear as dead in DFHack. I run this command line and it returns "true":
:lua print(dfhack.units.isDead(dfhack.gui.getSelectedUnit()))
