Is there a difference? Can you give an example (even imaginary) of an animal that would eat live prey but not hunt/stalk it? Or one that would hunt/stalk but not eat the prey? It seems like these activities are inextricably linked, but I may be not thinking hard enough.

I do not believe all carnivores are predatory
True. Some carnivores are scavengers (vultures come to mind!). Do the definitions need to be clarified? Feel free to add to what's there.
