      Description

      The bug

      Bows can be used to attack through thin surfaces such as doors and fences sometimes.

      How to reproduce

      1. Attract a zombie, spider, or angry zombie pigman to a closed door. (These mobs will press right up against the door rather than just standing on the adjacent block.)
      2. Fire a charged arrow at the door. (Back out of right-click range or turn aside at first so that you don't open the door instead.)
      3. The arrow may hit the mob. (It can depend on how the exact distance and power; it is more reliable with doors than fences.)

      I would expect the arrow to always hit the door, as melee attacks do.
