June 25, 2009: Wallabies in Tasmania, Australia frequently eat poppies in poppy fields (which are used to produce opium). As a result, they become high and hop around in circles, creating crop circles. Sheep and other animals have also been observed to move in circles after eating poppies.
Game and Story Use
- The stoned wallabies could be channeling fairies.
- Or perhaps they have been trying to summon them - i.e. open up a trod.
- Imagine a setting where both large animals and vast plantations for drugs exist. If the animals make a habit of feeding on the drug fields, they could do a lot of damage - and be the cause for some great slapstick scenes as people attempt to capture them or drive them away.
