Owen was waiting for the new worker to show up. He knew they were getting a new raptor worker, and Owen would be the one to assess them. These were his animals- only those he completely trusted would be allowed to do what he did.
He finished feeding the raptors, giving each a loving pat to the muzzle before sending them into the foliage.
“Owen!” Barry called. “He’s here!”
Owen moved out of the enclosure, closing the gate behind him. He cleaned his hands off as he walked out to the platform , glancing at the male beside Barry. “You must be the new guy.” He commented, holding out a hand. “Owen Grady.”
