Hey Stewart, this vegan thing is *not* new!

Google News found me a SciAm article Falcarius Utahensis which the good doctor in charge reckons is a veggo species descended from something like a velociraptor.

Not sure I trust the source, though, since he wants the beastie to also be a proto-bird and never mind the absence of any feathers or the “modern” birds already found deeper into the fossil record. The SciAm article has a drawing of one whacky-looking beastie. For those who can’t be bothered following the link, imagine a couple of Moa birds caught in the act, behead the Daddy one and morph that a little with a random long-necked reptile.
