    Elk accused of bad conduct

    Here is the latest news in our neighborhood.

    Last year a Boulder Cop Shot an Elk that had been hanging out in a Boulder neighborhood for years.
    His defense now wants to bring up the Elk's past behavior to show the shooting was justified.

    Boulder DA seeks to exclude evidence Mapleton elk engaged in 'bad conduct' before being shot - Colorado Daily

    "It is apparent that, at various points, the defense may take the position that the elk that was killed on Jan. 1, 2013, had engaged in 'bad conduct' on other occasions," Garnett wrote in the motion. "Because these alleged incidents are far removed in time from the date of the crime, none of these incidents are relevant to any of the defenses and there is no evidence that the defendant knew of those incidents of misconduct."

    I was hoping there was some meat to chew on there, other than a defense attorney working hard for his client.
    Gosh, it would be awful pleasin'
    To reason out the reason
    For things I can't explain

    Here is one of the original articles on the incident:
    Boulder Officers Resign Over Elk Killing - ABC News

    The Elk had been a regular around the neighborhood for some time.
    The cop decided he wanted the head for a trophy.

    "Curnow then loaded the animal onto a vehicle and proceeded to process the elk for meet."
    That would be the local Lodge meeting Wandrin ? or they have changed the spelling of meat.

    "I don't see a whole lot of difference between the shooting of this defenseless elk and the shooting of school children in Connecticut,"
    Well they are only Connecticutian kids.

    That's what a defense attorney is supposed to do.
