As evidence for the theory that deinonychus did not pack hunt, several were found dead with shed teeth in them that came from a...

what if the pack was starving and they began fighting each other for food?

Then they must have not been a terribly successful species to kill several of their own pack.

We're not talking just 1 or 2 here. I think 4 were dead. And, this isn't even new.

Which is why in all likely hood, they hunted in groups.

That wouldn't explain trackways from multiple dromaeosaurs traveling together.

Family groups and pack hunting or 2 different things, in a way. I'm fine with family groups.

Look, this is like a court case. We're not speculating, we're looking at the facts.

Based on all I know about the Tenontosaurus incident, I do believe that its likely dromaeosaurids were pack-hunters. However, that's also based on what we know about modern medium-sized carnivores.

Look at the logic: Lions do it to bring down elephants. So do hyenas, wolfs, dolphins, orcas, and humans. Plus, we have fossilized teeth and footprints together, showing a group of at least three 3 dinosaurs pack hunting.

And so Deinonychus most likely hunted in packs.

Lions bringing down elephants? Eh, if small cows at night count, sure!

Look at the number of animals that DON'T pack hunt and get along fine without it.

If it's just 3, it could be a family group.

Well, let's see...

4 deinonychus were found dead, killed by some other deinonychus and not a large predator or herbivore. Therefore, it is concluded that they must pack hunt.

A halfway formed answer, I'd think.
