Tiny Epic Dinosaurs

Can an escaping Carnivore "eat" an escaping Herbivore to prevent the Herbivore penalty?

When performing the Carnivores' escape penalty, you may discard a Herbivore which was going to escape. If an escaping Carnivore eats an escaping Herbivore first, that Herbivore does not cause the Herbivores' Escape Penalty.
