The offices University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) are being watched - and not by NSA, for once! Professor Michael Lens was the first one to send out a cry for help via a tweet. His colleagues are stalked by a group of baby owls that hatched in a nest just outside their window. And while you might stare at the cute birds, the birds stare back at you, hard.
The baby owls fix their wide-eye, unflinching gazes on the academia trapped in the rat maze of university corridors in the search for grants.
Online press has tried reaching out to the university for a comment, but they didn't receive a reply. It would be unwise to say that faint hooting is the only thing they heard in response... but it would be totally logical.
