Mystery solved: Boulder cops under investigation in elk shooting

Two Boulder police officers are the subject of both an internal investigation by the police department and a criminal investigation by Colorado Parks and Wildlife after they shot a large bull elk in Mapleton Hill but apparently did not report it to anyone.

According to Boulder police, one officer shot the animal while on patrol, and another officer who was off-duty took it home for the meat.

Boulder police officials initially denied reports from neighbors that the animal was shot late Tuesday night, but after seeing pictures of the dead elk provided to the Daily Camera by neighbors, they looked into the matter.
