In fact, ethologists if I am not mistaken are inclined to employ terms such
as violence or aggressiveness only for intra-specific behaviours, not for
inter-specific fighting, e.g., for predation purposes.

For many animal species intra-specific violence is in fact widespread, even
though often ritualised or limited to an extent.
