Crop circle debunker says he was framed

July 26, 2012 at 1:23 PM

GOTTINGEN, Germany, July 26 (UPI) -- The owner of a Web site specializing in crop circles says he has no idea who carved out his Web address in a German wheat field.

Andreas Muller this week denied any role in the apparent vandalism, which the farmer near Gottingen said could cost him 1,500 euros ($1,841) in lost production.

"I fully distance myself from this act, which can be described as nothing short of vandalism," Muller said in a statement on his site.

The Local.de said Muller theorized the act was carried out by individuals who were angry at his recent debunking of certain crop circles, which were the work of earthling pranksters rather than visiting aliens.
