Reason Behind Crop Circles Revealed

June 25 | 1 Comment

Psst! You wanna get high?A friend of mine got hit by  a car a few years back. He broke his leg in two places and had pins surgically implanted to fuse the bones together.

Throughout his rehab I’d visit him often to lift his spirits. It seemed he was always a bit out of it. Turns out he was hitting the pain medication a bit too hard. Months after he was walking normally again, he was still partaking in the medicine.

We held an intervention.

I barked out my love and concern for ‘Lefty’, that was his nickname because he was hit on the right side, in hopes of getting him help. I told him I’d never share another ear lick with him again if he didn’t go off to rehab. After my sister Copper did the same, Lefty went to rehab.

I’m happy to say Lefty is finally off the meds although I worry about his drinking problem. You would be too if you could see the floor after he’s done. It’s like another Katrina hit landfall.

I tell you this story as a cautionary tale about drugs. Not only does it affect canines and humans, but get this…wallabies too. The Metro has the full details.

Wallabies eating legally grown opium poppy fields are getting “high as a kite” and hopping around making crop circles, Australian officials say.

“We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles,” Tasmania Attorney-General Lara Giddings was quote in The Mercury newspaper as saying.

Tasmania is the world’s largest producer of legally grown opium for the pharmaceutical market.

A manager for one of two Tasmanian companies licensed to take medicinal products from poppy straw told the newspaper that wildlife and livestock – including deer and sheep – that eat the poppies are known to “act weird.”

“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.

Hmmm…so they’re the ones behind all the crop circles. Who knew there were wallabies in Nebraska?
