[Epic][0.76.01][animals] Small boars are often running into the water and run circles underwater

Small boars often run into the water. Then they might have difficulties to get out of the water. The boars are then running circles under the water surface for minutes and hours. However, the boars don’t drown or die. Obviously they can breathe below the water.

Go to an island. Kill the big boar. Try to scare one of the little boars, so it runs into the water. However, it might only happen on some islands. Probably it has to do with the geometry and terrain of the island.

For me this issue has happend at least around 5 to 10 times within 306 ingame days (5d 4h of playing).

I have not tried, if reloading the game helps to free the boars.

Here is an image of a boar which runs or walks (if not scared) in circles for ever, always under water:

I can also offer you a video, if you need to see it, but I have to upload it somewhere first.

Thanks me2,

Loving all these detailed bug reports.
