I am not making this up.
Police say an off-duty officer who had called in sick the night the elk was killed took the carcass home to be processed for meat. The Boulder Daily Camera reported Monday that officer has a website that offers taxidermy services.
The second officer also has been placed on leave. State wildlife officials are investigating.
I have no doubt. Reminds me of the old Bill Mauldin cartoon: ‘Joe, I coulda swore there was a Kraut usin’ that cow for cover. Go wake up the cooks.’
