In the DS9 episode "Captive Pursuit" Tosk shoots the hunters:
O'BRIEN: Come on, Tosk. Round this corner and we're there. (Hunter and two aliens beam in.)
HUNTER: No. He is mine. (Hunter fires. Tosk pushes O'Brien aside and dodges the fire)
O'BRIEN: No. (Tosk shoots Hunter and his companions)
O'BRIEN: Go on.
Does Tosk kill the Hunters or just stun them? Do we learn more about how the whole hunter/hunted relationship and rules are to know the answer to this?
It seems like in every other instance Tosk only stuns or knocks out the hunters. It'd be a better self preservation strategy to kill them so they can no longer pursue them and bring the hunters numbers down as well, if it's allowed in the rules of the hunt.
