In this paper we analyze the explicit Runge-Kutta discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) methods for the semilinear hyperbolic system of a correlated random walk model describing movement of animals and cells in biology. The RKDG methods use a third order explicit total-variation-diminishing Runge-Kutta (TVDRK3) time discretization and upwinding numerical fluxes. By using the energy method, under a standard CFL condition, we obtain $L^2$ stability for general solutions and a priori error estimates when the solutions are smooth enough. The theoretical results are proved for piecewise polynomials with any degree $k \geq 1$. Finally, since the solutions to this system are non-negative, we discuss a positivity-preserving limiter to preserve positivity without compromising accuracy. Numerical results are provided to demonstrate these RKDG methods.
