* The ending of ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving]]'' has Snoopy and Woodstock, the latter of whom is a bird, sitting down to have a turkey dinner. The bonus feature on the special's new DVD release has Bill Melendez admitting even he thought that scene was rather morbid. It ''really'' doesn't help that on at least one occasion in the comic, Woodstock and the other birds spent Thanksgiving hiding at Snoopy's place because they were terrified of becoming Thanksgiving dinners themselves.

** To make things more horrifying, Cat and Dog share bodies. So if Dog eats Cat, he eats his own body.
** Well, they only felt pain in their half, so they have their own bodies, but they meet in the middle, [[CaptainObvious 'coz they're conjoined]]. So Dog would have only eaten Cat, which just leaves Dog and his half of the body...

** Another episode involved Cat succumbing to his feline instincts and trying to eat Winslow, an anthropomorphic mouse.



** While they're alive, anyway. Buddy, on discovering he's a Tyrannosaurus, also discovers that he likes carrion, and in another episode, Annie explains that the T-rex family migrates to follow the herbivores, because "they eat plants, and we eat them".

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' largely avoided this trope until ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard''. The cartoon is about Simba's son (a lion cub) and his friends (several who are carnivores or omnivores) protecting the Pridelands. More than once this involves "saving" prey from predators. Despite this, the main characters eating other animals is acknowledged. One episode even revolves around the fact Fuli (a cheetah) hunts alone, though we never actually see her catching her prey. The Lion Guard frequently interact with prey animals however they don't seem scared of them. To add to the confusion, sometimes they speak, other times they [[only make animal noises]].

* Diego in ''WesternAnimation/GoDiegoGo'' often has to help a prey animal evade a predator (the reasons aren't specified) though he's also helped predators to live, and has no qualms about anyone [[NoCartoonFish eating fish]]. In one episode, he helps a llama outrun a puma until he realizes that he personally knows the puma, and it's a ''"nice"'' putma who only wanted to borrow a book. The prey animals are always described as being "afraid of" their predators, but the idea of animals actually ''eating'' each other never comes up.

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' takes place in a world populated by humans and PettingZooPeople. One episode shows a chicken farmer who is himself a chicken, and his livestock are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4xytsouUYo just as anthropomorphic]] as himself, but as he explains they are injected with hormones at birth that make them stupid.
