Farmers in northeastern Hungary are complaining about large-scale crop theft. Some of them have had to give up their farms.Impoverished villagers often steal a little food from farmers'fields. But increasingly, whole truckloads of animal fodder or alfalfa are disappearing. It's suspected that livestock breeders are the clients of these well organized thefts. The farmers have little chance of stopping these nocturnal thieves given the size of the fields. Some farmers have hired security companies to guard their fields. But that's expensive and doesn't offer 100 percent protection. The government has now increased the penalties for such crimes. But that hasn't deterred the thieves.
