Tasmania Attorney-General Lara Giddings has solved the mystery of crop circles. What we thought was a form of pervasive play was obviously just doings of a bunch of sky-high marsupials. Quoting AP:
“We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles,” The Mercury newspaper quoted Giddings as telling the hearing. “Then they crash. We see crop circles in the poppy industry from wallabies that are high.”
Sheep are also on the constantly growing list of suspects.
“There have been many stories about sheep that have eaten some of the poppies after harvesting and they all walk around in circles,” Tasmanian Alkaloids field operations manager Rick Rockliff said.
I wonder what they were smoking before deciding to do this one…
Wallabies or sheep? You decide. More circles in here.
