Owen Grady, a United States Navy veteran, has been researching the intelligence of the park's four Velociraptors. Vic Hoskins, the head of InGen Security, believes the raptors should be trained for military use despite objections from Owen and his assistant, Barry. Masrani has Owen evaluate the enclosure of the park's new hybrid dinosaur, Indominus rex, before the attraction opens. Owen warns Claire about the danger of raising the Indominus in isolation, pointing out its lack of socialization with other animals. When they discover that the Indominus seems to have escaped, Owen and two others enter the enclosure. Able to camouflage itself and mask its heat signature, the Indominus suddenly appears and devours Owen's companions before escaping into the island's interior. Owen suggests that the Indominus must be killed, but Masrani decides to send a specialized unit equipped with non-lethal weaponry to capture it. After most of the unit is killed, Claire orders the evacuation of the island's northern sector.
