Lawmaker accused of illegal hunting
Hunting rifles and deer carcasses were allegedly found in Vladimir Taskayev's car after he and his 25-year-old son were stopped by an inspector in the Bogdanovich state hunting reserve outside Yekaterinburg, RIA Novosti reports.
The inspector let Taskayev off after realizing he was a deputy. The two were then stopped and released a second time shortly after.
The local branch of Russia's Investigative Committee is conducting an investigation, RIA Novosti reports.
The LDPR's Igor Lebedev said that his party would push for Taskayev's removal if it is proven that the law was broken.
