"In 2015, the Romanian government, many of whose members have carried on Ceauşescu’s enthusiasm for shooting wild game, sought to pass a law banning sheep grazing during the winter hunting season and restricting to three the number of dogs that might accompany a flock of sheep on the mountain pastures. The dogs stood accused, on scant evidence, of attacking and killing the hunters’ prey, mostly deer and wild boar. The shepherds of Romania were aghast. They needed, they said, a minimum of five – and preferably seven – dogs to guard each flock from the wolves."

"You cannot climb the tower of the church in Csaroda. But if you could you would look out across a flat land stretching away from you in all directions. The horizon to the east is today in Ukraine. In every other direction you are looking at country that has been part of Hungary for more than a thousand years. This province is called Bereg. Only a small part of historical Bereg remains within Hungary today. The rest of it, including its capital – Beregszász – lies to the north and today within Ukraine."
