The ferocious beasts may have "stuck together as a pack to increase their chances of bringing down prey and individually surviving," said study co-author Richard McCrea, a curator at the Peace Region Palaeontology Center in Canada.

- Queen's photobomb at Commonwealth Games 'not total accident'
It may have looked like a lucky quirk of timing, but the queen's photobombing of a selfie at the Commonwealth Games was not a complete accident, an athlete in the image said Friday. The image of a beaming Queen Elizabeth II in the background of Australian hockey players Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris' selfie has gone viral. Taylor said she and Peris seized the opportunity when, during their warm-down after the Hockeyroos' 4-0 win over Malaysia in Glasgow on Thursday, they saw the monarch at the venue. "Brooke and I planned it so that when she came out the door she would be behind us," Taylor told Sydney's Daily Telegraph.

- U.S. Jewish group wants its award back from Turkey's Erdogan
An association of Jewish Americans said Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has become the world's "most virulent anti-Israeli leader" and demanded he return an award it gave him a decade ago, partly for his efforts to broker peace between Israel and Palestinians. The New York-based American Jewish Congress awarded Erdogan its "Profile of Courage" award in 2004 for what it said was his stance on fighting terrorism and working towards a peace. "Now, we want it back," the association's president, Jack Rosen, said in an open letter to Erdogan dated July 23 and made public on Thursday. He cited the Turkish leader's comments last weekend that Israel had "surpassed Hitler in barbarism" through its attacks on Gaza.

- No more 'cut-throat' grand tours, says Wiggins
Bradley Wiggins is turning his back on "cut-throat" road racing and has ruled out competing in any more grand tours, the 2012 Tour de France champion said on Thursday. Wiggins, who won a silver medal in the team pursuit at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday, will instead focus on the track where he hopes to compete at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in two years' time. "That will probably be it for the grand tours. I can't imagine doing that now." Wiggins, a four-time Olympic gold medallist, has not raced a grand tour since pulling out of last year's Giro D'Italia.
