Well, it might do better than one would expect. Most carnivores tend to be
a bit on the cautious side, except in extremis. And the living
_Struthiomimus_ mimic packs one whale of a kick - it is literally deadly,
so the original probably could do a fair job of kicking as well.
Between these two factors, holding off a single dromaeosaur might be a real
possibility. Two is, however, pushing it. (Not to say that a brooding
mother wouldn't *try* - odds don't always matter to such).
