0001774: Ex-military Dwarf hunted vermin and starved himself to death despite having access to food and drink
After removing one of my dwarfs from the military, everything with him seemed to go wrong. His happiness dropped to very unhappy, for several reasons such as being hungry and thirsty(despite there being plenty of food and water to drink, which my other dwarfs used happily), and he refused to sleep in the bedroom I assigned him(i later discovered that another dwarf had taken up residence in his room. Another bug perhaps?)

Other dwarves, even ones I removed from the military, did not have this problem. In the end he resorted to hunting vermin for food, which proved quite unfulfilling as he starved to death a season later. Down one legendary miner...

Not sure. Removal from the military probably caused it, and he was a militia/squad captain.
This may be part of the bug involving military dwarfs not going back to civilian activities, but a much more severe and irritating example.

Was the dwarf assigned to a burrow?

Did he stop drinking and eating because of "melancholy" or "running around babbling", perhaps went insane from being relieved from duty?
