      The bug

      When I sneak+place a spawn egg on a mob spawner, the mob is placed in the spawner rather than spawning it next to the spawner. This means you are unable to spawn a mob while looking at a spawner without changing the entity to be spawned.

      What I expected to happen

      The mob would spawn next to the spawner (G9dRsJK (1).jpg)

      What happened

      The mob was placed in the spawner (lwXbPXG (1).jpg)

      How to reproduce

      1. Place a mob spawner
      2. Get a spawn egg
      3. Sneak+place your spawn egg on the spawner
