In search of monsters

Glasgow University scientists have made an interesting discovery off the west coast:
The footprints of a carnivorous dinosaur that hunted in packs and ate its own young have been discovered on the Isle of Skye.
It seems that these beasties were active on Skye 170 million years ago. I'm not quite sure why the palaeontologists needed to travel all the way to Portree, no doubt at the taxpayers' expense. There is a similar family of ancient veloceraptors right in the centre of Glasgow itself. It's been there forever, it destroys its young, and, if you haven't guessed, it's called the Scottish Labour Party, although I don't think that its members are capable of moving at nine miles per hour.
