But that would imply the kind of social behavior the tar-trap scenario is 
supposed to
argue against.  Besides -- five other individuals were killed.  Is such 
behavior -- one
after another until so many are dead -- known from other group hunters?

Is it clear that no other dinos were found with the so-called "pack"?

Pack-hunting would seem to imply at least some other complex social group 
like group raising of young, food-sharing, and complex communication systems.  
exhibit some of these behaviors.  Do any birds?  Did tyrannoraurs have the 
brain for it?
