This is kind of boring, as the glyph is just a mess. But for the sake of completeness:
“A curious event was recorded on a sugarcane field in Riolandia, near Votuporanga [Brazil]. In an area close to the Rio Grande, the sugarcane was smashed and formed a strange drawing in the field. The image is unexpected. Among the 22 acres of the field, a circle was created with the sugarcane stamped in the ground, in an area of about 60 meters in diameter. No plant was extracted, and around them all remain firm. To ufologist Jorge Neri, the signs show that something very strange happened in the place.”
Click the image above to check the video on TV TEM, a local channel. There are more details in Portuguese on the Diario de Votuporanga news item.
And among those, we learn that the only eyewitness associating the smashed sugarcane with UFOs is the owner of the small hotal near the field. Mauricio Pereira da Silva candidly comments about how “now this place looks like a tourist attraction, everyone wants to see the place where the UFO landed”.
As if this wasn’t convenient enough, around two weeks ago the movie “Signs” was aired in TV. Even though it’s somewhat old already, it caused some commotion, as web searches for terms like crop circles or even the alleged footage of an alien disrupting a birthday party simply boomed.
Ufologists say they plan to investigate the case, but have already expressed their certainty that this involved aliens.
Would the humble hotel owner and sole eyewitness be our Latin Mel Gibson? In any event, we suggest having many glasses of water, and for those interested in visiting the place, be sure to have asthma.

UPDATE: The event has been all the rage in Brazil. There are many news items about it, and I’ll sort and link them later. For now, let me note that:
1- The whole city, and our Latin Mel Gibson, are exploring the event commercially and have no shame about that;
2- Some other ufologists, from the Brazilian UFO mag, also visited the place, and will probably publish their finds later. But they are not very critical in their approach, having been duped many times before.
And there are more photos here.
