Jan. 2, 2014 at 2:31 PM

SALINAS, Calif., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- A California crop circle with unknown origins was destroyed by the land owner tired of the unwanted attention, a security company said.

A representative of Echelon Security Company, which was hired by the land owner to protect the Salinas property, said the mysterious pattern that gained worldwide fame when it was photographed by aerial photographer Julie Belanger, was mowed down by the landowner to discourage visits from curious parties, ABC News reported Thursday.

Belanger said she was surprised to see the intricate crop circle was gone when she flew over the property Monday.
