Raptors in packs with refs - woo-hoo!

Brian Switek, author of the excellent blog Laelaps has written an article for UK newspaper The Guardian that discusses the likelihood that dromaeosaurs hunted in packs. Interesting stuff to be sure, familiar to many of us interested in dinosaurs yes, but the great thing about this article apart from the clear and concise arguments presented for and against pack hunting behaviour in dromaeosaurs was that Brian was thoughtful enough to include a list of references; a rare treat in a palaeontology story covered in the mainstream press and it would be excellent to see other writers following suit.
