    Stoned Wallabies Blamed for Crop Circles

    Australian farmers say wallabies are getting stoned on poppy plants and making crop circles as they hop around in an opium-fueled stupor.
    The bizarre behavior was reported to a state parliamentary hearing on the security of poppy crops in the southern island state of Tasmania, the BBC reported.
    State Attorney General Lara Giddings said the furry marsupials were getting "as high as a kite" and running, or hopping to be more accurate, amok in the state's opium fields.
    "We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles. Then they crash," she told the hearing.
    "We see crop circles in the poppy industry from wallabies that are high."
    She said the phenomenon was "one interesting bit that I found recently in one of my briefs on the poppy industry."
    About 50 percent of the world's legally-harvested opium, used to make morphine and other painkillers, is grown in Australia, the BBC reported.
    Opium is derived from the black resin of the poppy flower. In a more refined form it becomes heroin.
    Tasmanian poppy farmer Rick Rockliff said the wallabies were not the only party animals making headaches for producers.
    "There have been many stories about sheep that have eaten some of the poppies after harvesting and they all walk around in circles," he said.

    I think I'm going to start a band called The Stoned Wallabies.

    Stoned wallabies are way worse than zombie rabbits.
