Hundreds Hold Vigil for Dead Elk

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.

Exhibit A for the prosecution.

On a tip from Ghost of FA Hayek.

    if you have ever seen one of these 1300lbs + beast go on a rampage out of fear a house is no barrier for them they can run thru a house and kill anyone in their path. moonbats would be calling for elk control if that happened. the patrolman make a prudent desion. moonbats fuckem all

  • dan

    nice kill,officer….get it mounted and have a bar-b-que for the homeless

  • Metryq

    Individual judgment does not exist in the liberal utopia. Everything must be done in committee after an expensive, taxpayer-funded study.

  • Kanaka Girl

    Having lived in Boulder, this does not surprise me at all. The place is overpopulated with hygiene challenged, Birkenstock wearing, granola eating, dreadlock sporting hippies.

  • jerrytombs

    u can bet if a moonbat had got one of them mossy racks up his ass he would be singin a differnt tune ,,,,,,out his ass

  • Here in Iowa, the DNR estimates that this bow/muzzle-loader/shotgun season will see a harvest (that’s right, I said harvest) of about 70,000 deer.

    Someone ought to inform the oh-so-sensitive Colorado moonbats of this impending “genocide”. 🙂

    Ummm…. Several hundred people….

    What has happened to my country?

    ‘Vigil for a dead elk.’ Hmppttt! Any one of those ‘vigilant’ bastards ever runs over a squirrel without stopping to ‘pray’ is a freaking hypocrite. If these stupid son’s-of-bitches don’t go to PETA and the SPCA to ‘pray’ for the animals killed by those organizations are freaking hypocrites.

    Well, actually – all liberals are freaking hypocrites anyway – this is just further proof.

    “I killed my baby yesterday! Now I have to go pray to a dead elk!” Damned SICK individuals. SICK SICK SICK SICK.

  • forest

    Looks delicious.

  • Rotohammer

    I expect the wailing treehuggers will be in attendance, or at least send their condolences.

  • snuss

    Were they be serving elkburgers at the memorial?

  • marcus tullius cicero


  • Mr Evilwrench

    We have a restaurant here that serves elk burgers, and of course I had to have a couple. Shame to see something like this go to waste, but of course you have to feed the bureaucracy before you can even feed the homeless. My neighborhood, they’d’ve come around looking for it and wonder where it had gone 😉

  • Grunt

    It’s a shame, really….something that looks so yummy is gonna get parted out in a “necropsy”. Riiiight.

    How many of these guys will be taking home a little something for the grill?

    Pump the meat full of birth control and feed it to the OWS types…

  • Son of Taz

    I’d be placing food that attract elk all over town, but especially near homes of known moonbats.

    Let the elk roam free all over town. Priuses will be totaled from run-ins with these beasts. Will they cry for the wrecked cars too?

    Might even take out a few moonbats.

  • James McEnanly

    Do they also go into mourning for elk that die of natural causes, such as predators, disease or starvation? At least this one went quickly, as opposed to being mauled and eaten by a grizzly.

  • dapenguin

    liberal test

    1) Do you support abortion
    2) Do you support capital punishment
    3) Do animals have equal rights to humans
    4) Do animals have more rights than unborn babies

    thanks for playing if you answered yes to questions 1 3 and 4 and no to # 2, you are not only a liberal, but a hypocrite and I might add, a sick sick excuse for human being.

  • GunnyG

    Elk? MMMMMMMMMMM. Steaks, stew, roasts, ribs. MMMMMMMM

  • F.D.R. in Hell

    There are a lot of famous Elks down here…

    Personally, I was a member of BPOE Lodge #275,
    Poughkeepsie, New York.

    Then there’s Jack Benny, Gene Autry, and Buster Keaton.
    Shall I go on?


  • Eleanor in Hell

    Franklin, it’s a thread about a dead animal, not members of The Mystic Knights of the Sea.

  • F.D.R. in Hell

    Oh, sorry… never mind.

  • Clingtomyguns

    In lieu of flowers, the elk’s next of kin ask that the humans attending the vigil refrain in the future from crying over the souls of trees that they plan to eat and scrape their antlers and butts on.

  • Rides A Pale Horse

    I’m waiting for the vigils for the 53 MILLION + little lives snuffed out by abortion.
    Still waiting………

    Today, police officers would be well advised to mind their own business and protect themselves, their jobs and their pensions, especially in areas populated by liberal Kool-Aid gulpers. Let them fend for themselves, then see how fast they turn into wild-eyed conservatives.

  • Stacy Slay

    Here is the part you guys are missing, THE OFFICERS TOOK THE ANIMAL HOME FOR MEAT!! As a Colorado resident and hunter I am offended by this poaching of a trophy animal!!! As for a vigil?!?!? HUH ?!?!?!

  • Joek Loth

    The filthy bastards should’ve gave the meat to the local soup kitchen, made some Mr.Elk chili!! That way Mr.Elk would’ve been even more enDEARing to the towns-folk and the legend!!That way they could’ve remembered Mr.Elk everytime they shit their pants!! Wonder if they’ll release the Mr.Elk’s body to the grieving public for a proper elk burial?.!! Whatever the heck that is! Don’t elk just wander off and die somewhere in the back of the woods? I often wonder upon seeing various road kill, squirrel, coons(rac nt blk), oppossums, if the looney left ever cries for the brutally inhumane way that the so-called “nuisance critters” are killed, death-by-car?? Maybe they wanted to pull over and give the poor, innocent, not infected or infested by anything hazardous to humans, little creature a proper burial but they were just in too much of a hurry to get to Starbucks for the latest latte creation from Wolfgang Puck!!

  • Alphamail

    Next they’ll be putting up flower markers in remembrance of roadkill.

    FYI: Colorado has the highest elk population of any state in the union.

    And the elk population in the U.S. has more than doubled in the last thirty-five years, from around a half-million to well over a million.

    Elk sausage is my exceptionally tasty way to use the meat.

    O’Reilly said nearly half the herd voted for Obama, right?

  • If ya dont eat meat, it dosent matter. Poor Mr. elk.
    He was just tryin to get along, he was here first.
    PITA, wanted to put up a memorial for fish that spilled out of a truck in Irvine Ca. Why not here? Not a cross, I’m sure but something worthy of a life snuffed out too soon by a cop who acted irrationally.
    If I was an elk, that might look like my son.
    Light the Q fools, theres enough to go around.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    Poaching ?
    Stacy Slay
    This depends on whether the elk was a public safety risk
    This could merely be a case of one agency bucking heads with another.
    Here a Whitetail deer (according to the local DNR officer) is “property of the state” unless it is a dead one on my driveway approach (road kill)
    Then it becomes MY property.
    However if I attempt to remove it, I can be charged with hunting out of season, and even have the expensive loader I used to bury it with confiscated.
    He admittedly would have given me permission to remove it by phone, but since he was (ironically) elk hunting in Colorado that week, I was to drive around the carcass while rigor mortis set in.
    However, if this roadkill had been a skunk….

  • Garpin

    Did he take the beast down with his sidearm, or did he have to go big?

  • Max

    Husband is off in Wyoming hunting elk so I am not against shooting them. However, these policemen did not shoot a rampaging elk; they went elk hunting. Proof of that is that they did not report the shooting to their superiors. It is against the law to hunt in city limits & against the law to shoot 6 pointers.

  • Max

    Forgot to say that I told my husband when he left yesterday that if he shot an elk, he has to put up a memorial. He didn’t even laugh.

  • whotothewhat

    A candle light vigil for the elk? Man I showed up thinking it was a tailgate featuring barbecue elk meat. No wonder everyone was staring at me as I sat at the picnic table with a large bib and holding a knife and fork.

    Well, we ARE supposed to say Grace before meals…right?

    @Stacy Slay…it says WILDLIFE officers took possession of the remains…not the POLICE officers…In every state in every situation where an animal is not killed “by the book”, Wildlife Services (or as WE like to call ’em-FISH & GAME) takes possession of the remains.

    If the animal is not gutted right away, the meat is not dispensable to soup kitchens. AND there’s also the matter of the meat being ruined by adrenaline if the animal was already in distress…

    I myself have mourned for one of our little herd of cow elk here that got her calf pulled from her body & was left dead & uneaten by a pack of Canadian wolves…not 300 yards from my door… 🙁
    now THAT was sad…
