This is true. Story is still developing, but two cops said the elk was injured and one of the officers shot the elk with a shotgun. The other officer was off duty and came and loaded the elk in his pickup. He then took it home to process the meat. In addition the off duty officer supposedly has a taxidermy business as well. Niether one of the officers reported the incident. To make matters worse, the elk was killed in North Boulder which has many animal rights activist in the area. It is big news here in Colorado. The residence in Boulder even went as far as having a candle light vigil for the elk.
Both officers are now facing felony charges for poaching and other criminal activity as they should!
