Moreover, using the Die on Hit option (in the Extras panel) would prove useful also, when a predator successfully reaches a particle.

This tutorial is designed for Blender 2.46 and supplements Blender 2.46's release Logs about Boids particles systems. You need a SVN version of Blender to use it! Special thanks go to Janne Karhu for all the cool tips he provided me, both for the documentation and this tutorial.
