HANG 'EM HIGH
Our West Boulder Neighborhood Elk
Known To Bed Down In Our Backyard
One of Boulder's Finest, Protecting Us From The Savage Elk
Shot with a shotgun, carted off for butchering, no report, initial denials
The cops broke several laws, at least one of which is a felony
Officials are "investigating" and officers are on paid leave
The story and several photos can be found here. And the local memorial for the elk can be found here. Hanging the officers might be a bit harsh, but there are well-known methods for reducing their testosterone levels.
