Minnesota railroad tracks covered in corn


A railroad track in Crystal, Minnesota has been completely covered in corn for about 2,000 feet.

Photos of the large amount of corn on the tracks went viral on Reddit and Twitter early Tuesday and Minneapolis Star Tribune Reporter Adam Belz found the corn-covered tracks in person to prove their existence.

Belz estimated that the corn on the tracks was about two inches deep.

It is unclear how the corn got there. As for why it has stayed there? Well, the wildlife must be lazy in the area.

“There are deer and raccoon in the area but they’re hunkered down is my guess. They didn’t get the email,” Gary Bates, who lives near the tracks, told Belz.
