A standard predator-prey model is modified to incorporate a mechanism of attack by the original predator against the prey species via the production of a toxin. Those members of the prey species affected by the toxin produced by the predator are potential prey for the predator. The model is expanded to incorporate additional predator and prey. We suggest that introducing additional prey or predators of the original predator may assist in its control.
