Re: prevent other animals from killing and eating each other

The obvious answer is no. However, I wonder if there are any documented cases of an omnivorous wild animal choosing to eat an herbivores diet.

Re: Defining Terms

The 1st response to a google search "define omnivore":

om·ni·vore/ˈämnəˌvôr/
Noun:
An animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin.
