Such behaviour usually only occurs if the potential prey item is still
alive. I don't think there are many animals that would take such a risk
to retreive a corpse
There is of course another scenario - a group of Deinonychus find a
carcass, begin feeding, and another rival group shows up for a share.
There is a squabble, the two groups fight, and several Deinonychus come
off second best.
