The reputation of Tyrannosaurus rex as a predator rather than as a scavenger has been restored.
Guardian Unlimited said:
The dinosaur's feeding habits have long been debated by academics, with some claiming that T rex was less a ferocious hunter and more a lumbering slowcoach that scavenged the carcasses of beasts that had died at the claws of others.
The prey survived it's wounds healed. Whether T-Rex hunted or scavenged is a foolish and pointless debate predators are and have to be muggers they out to get a meal they attack the young old and crippled because they will give the predator less trouble.

I may not be knowledgeable about dinosaurs but surely it makes sense that a T rex would not be a scavenger, and would catch live prey like other predator species we have today, based on it's form, form and function and all that.
