Minecraft Animals, Villagers, and Armor Racks (Bedrock) Disappear

Minecraft, the popular computer-born world-building and survival game, has also reached consoles, mobile devices, and other platforms with a release called Bedrock.

However, it appears that Minecraft Bedrock players are suffering from bugs that cause certain animals, villagers, and armor racks to disappear. The bug would be particularly visible on the Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions.

Animals, villagers and armor racks disappear for some Minecraft Bedrock players

Many players are reporting important objects suddenly disappearing from their Minecraft worlds for no apparent reason (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8, 9, ten).

According to reports, the Minecraft Bedrock issue affects things like animals, villagers, and armor stands. Many players are confused about this and the issues seem to have started after the last update.

It seems that the bug can appear in different ways among players. For example, with regard to the disappearance of animals, in some reported cases, all but the cows disappear.

Minecraft community help my sheep keep disappearing when cows are perfectly fine and it happens to all other animals EXCEPT COWS


Meanwhile, in other cases, all except parrots disappear. There are also reports of cases where absolutely all the animals disappear.

Then there are the case reports where, in addition to the above, affected players describe the disappearance of objects and villagers without any explanation.

My friends and I were playing survival Minecraft where the host was on a Nintendo switch. We logged back in today and our pets, armor mounts, villagers, and farm animals are gone. I had fully enchanted diamond armor on one of the armor stands and was wondering if there was a way to recover the lost items and creatures, or if I could prevent it from happening again. Thanks in advance.

There are similar reports from years ago

This isn’t the first time similar reports have come out from Minecraft players. There are many years agowhere there are also complaints about the disappearance of animals and other elements in the game.


In these old reports, some users suggested that the bug could occur when there are a lot of animals together.

Developers are aware, working on a fix

In response to the reports, the game developers said the following:

We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is currently a known issue.

The team is currently working on a fix which should resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience while we work on the solution!

Thus, they are already aware of the bug and are working on a solution. However, there is still no estimated date for when the patch will arrive.

For now, affected Minecraft Bedrock players can only wait for the fix to arrive soon. We will update this article when updates arise on this to keep you informed.
