STONED wallabies in Australia are being blamed for creating crop circles.
Poppy producers in Tasmania have confessed that the kangaroo-like animals are making their way into fields where the opium plants are legally grown. The wallabies are then getting high eating the plants before hopping around the fields in circles.
Australia produces around half of the planets opium that is legally grown to make painkillers.
Mystery surrounds the phenomenon of crop circles with many believing they are elaborate hoaxes and others believing they are the work of aliens.
