The best sentence about Germany I read today

Government payments compensating hunters for lost income due to radioactive boar have quadrupled since 2007.

Here is more.  And this is a bit of explanation:

Wild boar are particularly susceptible to radioactive contamination due to their predilection for chomping on mushrooms and truffles, which are particularly efficient at absorbing radioactivity. Indeed, whereas radioactivity in some vegetation is expected to continue declining, the contamination of some types of mushrooms and truffles will likely remain the same, and may even rise slightly — even a quarter century after the Chernobyl accident.
