0005116: Militia chasing wrong enemy
I prefer to call this issue "attention deficit ooh shiny". Because that's what it is.

When I order my military to chase and kill a kobold thief, ANY animal nearby will distract them and go chase that animal as if it were their order. I have to re-order them to go chase the thief to have some chance of actually killing it.

This has already caused at least one dorf-baby to vanish to goblin lands and a few vary valuable items to make their way to raven's nests.
Make a militia, order them to kill a particular target on a map filled with other potential targets closer by.
No tags attached.
