What those cops did is 100 percent industrial strength dumb. They shot a neighborhood elk and failed to report same. Their goose is cooked.

Quote:

Boulder police officials initially denied reports from neighbors that the animal was shot late Tuesday night, but after seeing pictures of the dead elk provided to the Daily Camera by neighbors, they looked into the matter.

Boulder police chief Mark Beckner said he would refrain from commenting on the officers' actions until the investigation is complete, but he did say that not filing a report of the incident and not calling someone in to pick up the elk would "not be standard protocol at all."

"We're very concerned," he said.

Boulder police officers are supposed to file a report whenever they discharge their weapon, no matter the circumstances. They typically work with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to determine whether an animal needs to be put down, officials said, and would notify dispatchers before they shot an animal. Officers also are supposed to notify Parks and Wildlife when they take down large animals.
