Crop circles re-appear near Wilbur

WILBUR, Wash. - Farmers west of Spokane are used to growing grain, but now they're part of a growing mystery in the wheat fields of one farm.

Someone, or something, has created six circles in a grain field near Wilbur, 65 miles west of Spokane.

Craig Haden noticed the circles last Thursday while riding a motorcycle in the area.

"I didn't know what to think," he said.

Haden called his son and farmhand to check out the damage.

"I think it's wild," said Trey Coffman, a farmhand who works for Haden.

Coffman, Haden and Haden's son Braidy searched the circles for shoe prints or evidence that could lead them to who, or what, was responsible. All they found was crushed wheat.

Haden said the circles caused about $400 in damages to his farm. He says he won't be able to harvest the crop that was smashed to make the circles.

"If you have them popping up all over that's a lot of loss for farmers," he said.

This is the second time that crop circles have appeared in the Lincoln County area. A farm on the other side of Wilbur reported crop circles in their field two years ago.

That crop was greener, according to Haden who said it was still harvested.

The circles were found about 300 yards south of the Highway, hidden from passing traffic.

Haden says it would have been a significant hike into the area to make the crop circles but admits it would be possible.

"It sure took a lot of time, whoever did this," he said.

Haden said he plans to ask for $400 in damage to his crops if he ever finds out who is responsible.
