Good question! Velociraptors hunted in packs much like wolves and lions.They would search for a young,old,sick or vulnerable victim. One or more members of the group would distract the target while the others would lash out at the victim with their claws(specifically the big shiftable/movable claw on the middle toe) until the prey bled to death or was weakened. Their is debate though on whether Velociraptors would bite the jugular area(the neck area so that it would suffocate) or would lash out at the victim(as mentioned above). It is likely that they used both of these strategies to take down small animals.Then they would use their sickle claws(middle toe) to take down large prey to avoid injury.
