Abstract. We show a locally uniform bound for global nonnegative solutions of the system $u_t=\Delta u+uv-bu$, $v_t=\Delta v+au$ in $(0,+\infty)\times\Omega$, $u=v=0$ on $(0,+\infty)\times\partial\Omega$, where $a>0$, $b\geq0$ and $\Omega$ is a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$, $n\leq2$. In particular, the trajectories starting on the boundary of the domain of attraction of the zero solution are global and bounded.
