DF2014:Dwarf cancels task: Handling dangerous creature

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.

This message occurs when a dwarf who is handling any larger-than-vermin creature is assigned another non-creature-handling task. Note that this is generally a "soft cancel" (meaning the task will be reissued to another dwarf eventually), however constructions may be suspended, requiring player intervention.

This error is relatively common with both milking and shearing tasks, but can be reduced and/or eliminated by limiting the labors enabled on your animal-handling dwarves and dedicating a specific farmer's workshop solely for creature-handling tasks.
