      Description

      The bug

      When a skeleton is hiding under some blocks and the survival player walks into its sight the skeleton will then strafe and draw back the bow to shoot the player regardless of the sunlight it is strafing into.

      How to reproduce

      1. Create shade form the sun
      2. Spawn a skeleton in the daylight
      3. Once the skeleton is not on fire switch into survival mode and watch the skeleton begin to attack and walk out into the sunlight
      4. The skeleton will now seek the shade again and the player can repeat

      In this way the player is able to easily kill skeletons without actually hitting them.
