Let’s face it, not everyone likes the spotlight, which is why farmer Scott Anthony decided to get rid of the now famous crop circle that mysteriously appeared on his property last week.
The circle was first captured in an aerial shot by photographer Julie Belanger, and once the images got out to the general public, visitors from all over flocked to Anthony’s property, which didn’t sit too well with the 58-year old. Eventually, he hired someone from the Echelon Security company to shoo away crowds and protect his land.
But Anthony didn’t stop there and before the crowds got even bigger, he had the beautiful design plowed, which disappointed folks like Debra Falanga, who believes the circle was created by non-humans. She also felt the landowner should have kept it for others to see.
“When something unusual like this happens, why not let people experience it,” said Falanga in an interview with CNN. Plus, she says the design in the middle of the circle is proof that the image wasn’t created by humans.
“The Braille was so accurately portrayed, that’s hard to do manually, never mind in a crop circle,” she said. “It looks like a ticker tape of the number 192,192, 192.”
And even though Anthony had no desire to open his property to the public, and who could blame him, he had no idea how the circle got there in the first place. “To me, it looks like a computer chip or something like that,” he said. “To be that intricate in design, it kind of baffles me as to how that was done.”
Anthony was on vacation when a worker on his farm alerted him to the circle and he said the main reason he called security and ultimately removed the design was to protect his crops. “It’s a food safety issue,” he said.
