Recently it was discovered that wallabies are responsible for creating crop circles in Australia.  Aliens are usually blamed for creating these crop circles, but these small kangaroos are nothing out of this world – they were just high as a kite

Australia is one of the world’s largest producers of legally-grown opium poppies, which are produced there for sale to the pharmaceutical industry to create such drugs as morphine and codeine. Unfortunately, these wallabies also find the poppies tasty and gorged themselves until they were so high they couldn’t hop straight.  Their staggering created the circular patches of trampled down vegetation.

Animals closer to home get drunk too.  Check out this video to see one.
