It has a transitive use (the object being the things being seized) and two intransitive subtleties:
1b.intr. To plunder; to seek after or for spoil or booty; to go about with intent to plunder; (later also more generally) to maraud, rampage.
2a.intr. To eat voraciously; to feed hungrily or greedily; (also) to prey on or upon. Also fig.
It is used intransitively in our work.
