Sunday was a day of long faces in Colorado’s Mecca of Moonbattery, which mourned the passing of an elk:
The elk was honored with a makeshift memorial of candles, songs and stories.
Several hundred people attended a vigil Sunday in Boulder, Colo., for the elk that was killed by a police officer. It had wandered into a neighborhood, where it was fatally shot by an on-duty police officer.
The officer has said the elk appeared injured before he shot it. He has been placed on leave.
Libs can rest assured that officer Sam Carter will be punished severely, judging by the seriousness of the investigation:
Colorado Parks and Wildlife took possession early Thursday of what remains of the large elk, which frequented the area along Mapleton Avenue between Ninth and 11th streets, spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said. Churchill said she could not say whether wildlife officers took possession of the head and antlers, but she said they took “everything” that remained and that officials would do as much of a necropsy as possible.
Just shooting a six-point elk can set you up for a $10,000 fine. Killing one within the city limits of a town full of moonbats is no doubt a career-ending offense. Jail time wouldn’t surprise me.
Police officers are best advised to allow wild animals to run amok and wait for them to get hit by cars.
