0004776: Tame flying animals won't fly.
Tamed flying pets won't fly, but remain earthbound. Not a huge issue, but it's sad to see all those tame giant eagles dragging their tailfeathers in the mud instead of flying free. Do dwarves clip their wings? How cruel!
Buy a tamed giant eagle from the caravan and watch it not fly.
No tags attached.

I first observed this in version 0.31.12, and it made me sad. Tame fliers definitely flied back in 40d, as mentioned in some of the tales of Flarechannel.
