The Kosovo police searched the home of a Serb local council member in the Ranilug municipality, the TV Puls Serbian-language station reported on Tuesday.
It said that Kosovo special police officers searched the home of Councilor Ivan Ristic in a village outside Ranilug, searching for wild boars. Ristic told the station that the police were on his property for three hours, searching the grounds and house. He said he took them to the enclosure where he keeps the animals which he plans to release into the hunting grounds.
Ristic said he asked the police why his house was being searched and got no reply. He thinks they were searching for weapons, adding that he has none even though he is a member of the local hunters’ club.
The police returned later with an animal transport vehicle and veterinary inspectors who should decide whether raising wild boars is legal or not, the station said.
