      Fix note

      Fix note: This has only been fixed for wolves as they spawn as friendlies. Ocelots spawn as monsters (i.e. continously) and need to be despawned when inactive.


      I created a survival file and started playing. I found some wolves and caged them so they didn't run off until I got some bones. I did not tame them, and for some reason, after unloading the chunk, they disappeared.

      To reproduce:

      1. Create a new world with no generation modifications.
      2. Find some wolves and trap them. Make note of their location.
      3. Wander off until the chunk is no longer loaded (>16 chunks).
      4. Go back and the wolves should've despawned.

      the code affected
