MOSCOW, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The All- Russia Society of Nature Protection has suspected opposition blogger Alexei Navalny of poaching and asked for explanations. The reason was a photograph that Navalny posted on the Internet, which features an elk shot dead.
The environmental society has demanded explanations from Navalny in connection with this situation. Navalny was also asked to name other hunters, who took part in the illegal hunting, and produce his hunting license.
If the blogger declines to clarify the situation, the environmental society will lodge a complaint with law enforcement bodies, which authorized the issuance of a license to the rifle, and will open a probe into the incident.
A spokesman for the environmental society has declared that they will find out when the elk was killed. Judging by the photograph, the animal was killed in summer, when elk hunting is banned by the law, the spokesman said.
