Beware of people who collect mushrooms in the German forests! Many times it is forbidden (verboten) to do so. Lately, organized gangs of criminals -- barbarians and vandals, literally -- have been discovered "pillaging" the forests of basketloads of prized mushrooms. Rangers who have confronted the pillagers have been threatened. Poor Germans, they still haven't recovered from the Grimm Brothers, and now they have one more reason to stay out of the forests. If you read the linked article, however, you will note that the German woods already are crammed with hunters, forestry workers, and non-criminal mushroom hunters. This is a heavily-populated country.

To date, I am not aware of any Canadians among the pillagers.
