The feathered demon known as the BYU hawk continues to wreak havoc on the college’s Provo grounds. The little fucker nested in a tree next to the Brimhall Building last month, and has been swooping in and showing students who’s boss ever since.
“I literally thought it was just, like, a bird that didn’t see where it was going or something and ran into me by accident,” a recovering Chisa Sawada told BYU’s ElevenNews.
Another student interviewed in the newsreel, Audrey Chugg, laughed when recalling how she first heard of the bird after her friend Maddy was victimized by the soulless harpy. Not cool, Audrey, not cool.
“It is normal behavior; it’s likely a female protecting her nest and her baby,” Richard Nowak, executive director of Avian Sanctuary and Protection (ASAP), tells City Weekly, adding “federal laws protecting our wildlife take precedence over the people.”
HIs advice? Wait it out. “Once the chicks hatch and they fly off, the parents will take ’em and show them the rest of the world, as it were.”
