Steals food

This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Creatures with the [CURIOUSBEAST_EATER] token will happily pillage your food stockpile if given the chance. This will generally prove only a minor annoyance; unlike drink stealers, creatures stealing food will grab a single stack (or container) and carry it towards the edge of the map.

This property can also be used to capture certain creatures (such as grizzly bears) by surrounding a small food stockpile with cage traps. You can also create a large fat stockpile on the surface in hopes that some of it will be carried off in place of much more valuable items by flying thieves (such as kea).

Creatures who can steal food[edit]

The following creatures possess the [CURIOUSBEAST_EATER] token.
