Farmer Wants Aliens To Pay For Crop Circles

Farmer Wants Aliens To Pay For Crop Circles

Czech cops say they are keeping an open mind after a huge crop circle appeared in a local field.

And while they say they don’t rule out "extra-terrestrial" involvement, they confirmed that for the moment they were looking for a more earthbound cause of the problem.

The whopping 6,000-square-metre four-pointed circular star appeared overnight in a farmer’s field in Boskovice in the south of the Czech Republic.

And despite creating a mini tourism boom in the region, the furious land owner Jan Karlik, 55, is at least one person who isn't impressed by the crop circle, who says it has caused 20,000 CKR (550 GBP) of damage and who is demanding justice.

He said: "I don't care where they were from, even if they are aliens, they need to be made to pay."

The crop circle consists of a 4-pointed star, framed by a circle with mysterious Stonehenge-shaped blocks set in a smaller circle.

Spokesman for the Boskovice local government, Jaroslav Parma, said: "It was first spotted by a local man who had gone for a walk. It is hard to see if you are not in the air but he noticed it when looking over the field to see where his dog had gone.

"The corn is not broken, it’s just bent to the ground. But it is beginning to attract a lot of attention and the farmer wants his land protected from curious visitors who are likely to make the matter worse if they start walking over the ground as well."

Local Adam Anton, 33, who visited the circle said: "It seems quite suspicious to me. Most people round here think it was done by human hands although nobody's really sure exactly who was to blame."

Police say they are keeping an open mind, and spokesman Iva Sebkova said: "Extraterrestrial civilisations and the influence of air vortices are not excluded, but we are currently concentrating on looking for human culprits."
