Officers Involved in Elk Shooting in Boulder Resign

Is it just me, or do you too feel these ‘peace officers’ had an overinflated sense of entitlement in killing a neighborhood icon? Area residents had even named him.Big Boy Boulder Elk The two Boulder Police officers involved in the shooting death of an elk on New Year’s Day have resigned their positions, effective immediately. Sam Carter admitted to killing the animal with his police-issued shotgun and ammunition. Carter and fellow officer Brent Curnow are accused of making plans to kill the animal. There is a real possibility that both men will be banned from ever working as peace officers in Colorado again. That decision is made by a separate board. Both men are facing nine charges each.


“The Boulder Police Department does not tolerate this kind of behavior. Police officers and other members of this department will be held accountable for their actions and behavior, and we want the community to know how seriously we take this breach of trust.”

Boulder police Chief Mark Beckner
