Definitions for "Scavenging"
Some animals, such as vultures, prefer to let others do all the hard work of hunting and killing prey and will then arrive to pick over what is left of the kill. This behaviour - eating the left-over remains of other animals meals (dead organic matter) - is called scavenging. In inner cities, rats, foxes, pigeons and cats can become a problem when they scavenge the rubbish left by humans and breed in enormous numbers.

The process of looking for letterboxes in 'likely places' without the use of clues. This is most common in Dartmoor where many tors are dotted with several dozen letterboxes at a time.
