Boulder, Colorado, police initially denied that any of their officers were involved in shooting an elk that had been roaming a local neighborhood. But after being confronted with photos, they admitted that an officer on patrol shot the animal and another officer, who was off duty at the time, took the carcass home for meat. The two officers are now under criminal investigation for shooting the elk and under departmental investigation for not reporting a discharge of a firearm.
