Zusammenfassung: 
We investigate the switching feeding behavior of predators in the context of one single prey population, which is disease affected. We consider the case of hunting indiscriminately both types of prey, when the infected prey causes no harm to their predators, but assume also in another model that feeding on the infected individuals has a negative return on the predators. Some counterintuitive results are obtained and discussed.
