About 15 students swarmed around two alpacas next to Haines Hall on Wednesday night.

Erik Schweitzer, associate research neuroscientist at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, brought his two pet alpacas, Sage and Rosemary, to his three-hour long class to cheer students up. He tied the alpacas to the fire hydrant beside Haines Hall because they were not allowed inside the building. UCLA students and a university police officer showed their affection for the alpacas by petting them and taking photos with them.
