There's also the possibility that the wounded animals were not the
hunting target. Maybe the wounded hadrosaurs  were just defending their
nests or their young, one needs to look very carefully to the evidence
in order 
to prove that Tyrannosaurs went after healthy adult hadrosaurs. Why not
scavenger/hunter of small(er) prey?
