Stoned Wallabies Make Crop Circles

Traditional explanations for crop circles: 1) Drunken pranksters; 2) tourism councils; 3) UFOs; 4) whirlwinds; 5) magnetic vortices.

To this we can add a sixth: stoned wallabies.

WALLABIES are hopping into Tasmania’s opium poppy fields and getting high.
The revelation has also solved what some growers say has spurred a campfire legend about mysterious crop circles which appear in the state’s poppy paddocks. In true X-Files style, Attorney-General Lara Giddings said yesterday the drugged-up wallabies had been found hopping around in circles squashing the poppies, creating the formations. [Link]

Don't like to rain on your parade people, but I'm not sure about this one...

I'm claiming local knowledge here as

1) I live in Tasmania,
2) I know wallabies,
3) My wife's an Agricultural Scientist

Even whacked out of their furry marsupial brains they're rather tender and sweet.

Not like wombats who go for your kneecaps when you try to hold them still for a group photo.
