Bugged ragdoll

Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I’m having some issues with a ragdoll on a character. Whenever that character is killed, its mesh turns into a ball, and proceeds to move around the scene. The mesh cant be interacted with after death, so it cant be eaten by other players. Which is an issue when eating another character for food. Is there anyway to fix this without having to scrap the entire model and start again?
