Yes, it might. However, nothing indicates this for sure. It is more likely
to me that it was eating a dead animal than slaying one in groups. And it is
quite likely that, as, I think, the article says, it both hunted and
I do not exclude the pack-hunting hypothesis, but I think we're often to
loose in attributing behaviors to any dino. Artists may (and must) do it to
picture living scenes, but science writings should not be so loose.

P.S. Did you receive the JVP articles I sent?
