Wallabies on opium make crop circles!

Further to recent posts about crop circles in England (see below), it seems that in Tasmania they have a similar problem of crop vandalism!

This time the crop is not the traditional wheat or barley, and the vandals are neither human nor alien.  This story is about wallabies that get into fields of poppies that are grown for medicine production.  The animals graze on the poppies, get totally stoned on them, and roll around making circles in the fields.

I can't find any photos of the 'formations' that the wallabies produce but if anyone knows of one it would be great if you could post a link a comment below.  (Comments are easy - and always welcome!)

Thanks to @spiderlin for the link!
