Vigil Held for Neighborhood Elk in Boulder

cbslocal

A Boulder Police officer shot and killed a bull elk Tuesday night. The elk, known as “Big Boy,” had been in the neighborhood for years. The officer says it appeared injured because it was limping and some of its antlers were broken off and needed to be humanely put down. The elk was taken to the officer’s home to be processed for meat by another officer, who was off-duty at the time. He was called various names, George, Elmo, by any name he was part of the community. Residents in the neighborhood looked forward to his
presence and had been around for three years.

A candlelight vigil was held in Boulder last night for an elk that was shot by a police officer last week. The vigil was held on Mountain View Road near where the incident occurred. Some residents created a memorial at a tree in the area. 2 police officers who were involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave while the Boulder Police Department investigates.
