According to the Wikipedia article on "piranha", it depends precisely on just how many piranha are available to attack. In a spectacular demonstration of entertaining local Brazilian fishermen, wanting to impress the visiting Pres T Roosevelt, they tossed a half-cow into the river among countless starving piranha and the dead beast was devoured in virtually no time.

Obviously, this was set up.

Nevertheless, it demonstrates the capability, given sufficient numbers and a starvation factor.

What type of food do piranha eat?

Piranha's eat different things depending on the sub-specie. Red bellied piranha's are very well known for being the ones which eat the meat. A previous answer stating that they eat other fish is quite untrue. There are documentaries on the fish, some are quite fascinating. Some will eat sloths during the rainy season, when the rainy season comes and the sloths have to move to find new food. Because it is inevitable that eventually, the food on the tree will disappear

There are in fact videos of this, which as gory as they may be, prove that piranhas are NOT cannibals most of the time. Among the reasons it is hard for fish to target other fish is that if the prey are too small, it's not enough to spend your energy on.

And if it's a big fish, supposing 1000 piranhas surround it... drowning a fish is pretty much impossible as they obviously have gills. And being slippy, it's easy for prey just to slip out of reach never to be seen again.

Most piranha eat seeds and other rather unexpected foods. The reputation that they are all bloodthirsty is not deserved. In the Amazon people will tell you that putting your finger in the water in the driest season is extremely dangerous. The fish are starving. But they feel more than safe in the rainy season to swim in the river.
