Many bots do not distinguish between losing moves.  If they discover a move leads to forced loss, they throw it away and never look at it again.  But then what if all moves lead to a forced loss?  Then perhaps they play the last move left.  That is to say, perhaps Loc didn't think pulling your rabbit to goal was its best move, merely that it previously discovered that all of its other moves would lose.
 
Still, I'm mildly surprised that Loc was able to tell, at blitz speeds, that pushing back a rabbit with both its cat and dog was a forced loss.  Perhaps that indicates some kind of bug, but even if so, it will never get fixed because Trippen has given up on Loc in favor of programming Rat.  Smiley
