Communist MP detained for having dead elk in the trunk of his car

A police officer and an employee of the hunting and fishing committee in the Saratov region of Russia stopped the car of the State Duma deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Valery Rashkin. A dead elk was found in the trunk of the MP’s vehicle.
The incident took place on October 29 in the Lysogorsky district of the region. The Lada Largus vehicle of the Russian MP was registered with the Saratov regional branch of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. Another 49-year-old man was traveling with Rashkin in the vehicle. Rashkin was offered to undergo a medical examination for alcoholic intoxication, but he refused.
“Rashkin explained that they had found the animal in the forest and decided to take it with them to butcher it up. The communist MP confirmed that he was aware that his actions were illegal,” Region 64 news agency reports.
