    When is hunting going to be banned? They've already done it in the UK.

      I agree that the candle light vigil was silly.

      But if the article was accurate, the cops were in the wrong and should be fired.

        ^ It's amazing that they'll get canned for this, but all the other sh*t they done probably wasn't ever reported. The irony is too rich.

              Nah, the good cop just went on an illegal hunt for himself, and he shot the poor beast and then tried to cover it up by no reporting the incident to the United States National Parks and Wildlife Services or something to that effect, but he took it home and butchered the animal for his own consumption, the bastard would have arrested and charged some member of the public for doing the same thing.

                  This is not your average Colorado town, this is the Republic of Boulder. They believe killing is immoral, of any creature. Some only eat wheatgrass.

                  Anyway this kind of explains the cops' reason for killing it.

                  He (resident Marcus O’Bryon) said the incident wasn’t reported by either officer until residents began to ask questions about the killing. He said Carter, who was on duty and on patrol in the area at the time, reported that he felt the animal needed to be “humanely euthanized” because it was injured.

                  After Carter shot and killed it with a single shot, he called Curnow. After Carter posed for a photo with the elk, Curnow “took the elk in his own vehicle to process the meat for personal use,” Beckner wrote in a letter to residents on Friday about the matter.
                  Now we need the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Poaching Scene Investigation detectives to come out and do an autopsy and prove whether the elk was injured before the shooting or not. "Next on CPW:PSI"

                  Anyway, there is a possibility that the Elk was wounded by traffic while wandering around metropolitan Boulder. However, there was no reporting. What if someone was concerned about a possible homicide after hearing a gunshot? His first call would've been to Animal Control who might have turned it over to Colorado Parks and Wildlife as there is a large state park right next to Boulder, Boulder Mountain Park where it is likely where the elk originated from. A lone elk is kind of rare. They usually travel with herds, so this one's unusual.

                      They only banned hunting with packs of hounds. So long as you have the landowners consent you can shoot pretty much what ever you want. So long as you don't use a bow and arrow.

                        Such distorted thinking has been going on ever since the rise of the Hippie Movement in the 60s.

                          Why not a bow? It's safer than a rifle.

                            Sometime in the sixties parliament decided to mess around with the laws relating to wild life. The archery lobby tried to get an amendment to allow bow hunting. It was pretty much a sure thing. So much so that the mp who was to table it went for a dump and missed his slot and as a result your not allowed to do it.

                            That's the legend. The real reason is they are way to handy for poachers. Silent and unliscenced easily conceleable.

                            Pretty much all the game in the uk belongs to someone so they don't like the idea of any one who isn't paying them a fortune to shoot it bagging a few on the quiet.

                              So really it's a legacy of Britain's feudal past. I know that it's just Hollywood fluff, but I recall a scene from Braveheart where Gibson says that the Scots were prohibited by their English lords from owning weapons. Were there such strictures during the Medieval period, meant to prevent "commoners" from being armed 'cause the nobles knew that they were the peasants' worst oppressor?
