Tyrannosaurs gorged on the young



Here's the story:

http://www.discovery.com/news/briefs/brief1.html?ct=3815c276

So, what conclusions about tyrannosaur behavior can
the lay-dude safely draw from this data?  

Was preying on sub-adults the tyrannosaur's likely MO
(like the MO of many extant predators)?  Are there
modern predators that take exclusively juvenile prey? 
(I am always a little loath to read too much into
evidence.  Help me out here.)
