      When a warden begins to sniff out a target, distractions nearby will not cancel the sniffing action, and the warden will notice and path towards the target anyway.

      In a normal survival scenario, this can seem as though the warden notices the player with no discernible reason.

      Reproduction Steps:

      1. Load a new creative world
      2. Spawn a warden
      3. Grab a stack of snowballs via the creative inventory
      4. Switch to survival mode
      5. When the warden attempts to sniff the player out, sneak and throw a snowball
      6. Take note of the warden's behavior as it paths towards the source of the distraction

      Expected Result:

      The warden should complete its path towards the distraction, and continue its normal behavior.

      Observed Result:

      The warden still notices and paths to the target on the same interval that its sniffing behavior works on, despite having been distracted.
