Wrap it up in BACON!! Or grill it up then. Make chili from parts too. I'm sure there's plenty that can be done with an entire elk. Make sausages from some too (don't let CG get a hold if the liver and such though ).

Personally, if the elk was being aggressive towards people, I would have shot it too. Of course, you should follow what you must for legal reasons. It's generally not worth the pain to not do so. So either the officer that did the shooting had the approval of his supervisor (and they're just denying it to cover their asses now) or he did an illegal shoot. With not filing proper after action reports and such, he should at least be reprimanded. I don't think firing someone over this is appropriate. Unless it's not the first time he's done this. As for using the shotgun, maybe he wanted to be sure it was killed with one shot, and didn't trust his service pistol to do the job.

IMO, holding the vigil just goes to show how F'd up this country is. If they have an issue with what the cop did, then they need to file protests, or protest at the station over it. Holding a vigil over a freakin animal is just... Well, more than just nuts.

I bet the people that organized it, and were the majority of the people on the vigil, are either anti-gun or are vegans.

Thanks @JeepDiver for the WHOLE story. This definitely makes more sense now. Ugh, this is exactly why FAUX News is the worst of the disaster that is mainstream media...

Although a vigil is a bit much and certainly not the best way to show your dislike for what happened. I agree with @Golddiggie

Well not knowing the facts it would appear as if the cops were wrong in killing the elk. That though does not explain the bizarre actions of the people holding a candle light vigil for a elk or what I like to call dinner.

Buffalo it just about the best on a grill. Honestly I have ate everything from rock chucks to mountain lion and buffalo is the best by far

Not really, I don't know about the "worthless hippies" part but in general I think this whole "vigil" nonsense over the killing of an elk within city limits really points out how ridiculous our society has become.

If these cops, or whoever, were poaching then they need to answer for that but there are already laws on the books in regard. The "elk vigil" was not only unnecessary and pointless but it's really the only thing here that can be considered juvenile.

I'd love to try some buffalo, but they only have the ground up stuff in the grocery store I go to. Not sure where else to get it either.

Obviously you have never had foil wrapped camp fire BBQ elk ribs after packing an elk off the mountain back to camp. Absolutely delicious!

A lot of the touchy feely folks in Boulder are upset about the killing of an animal. The rest of us are upset by the way it was killed. The Boulder PD office shot the elk at night with his service shotgun. Called an off-duty Sheriff Deputy to come get the Elk and take it to his house. People called the city to complain about there officer shooting the Elk, were told several times none of their officers were involved.

Comes out a few days later that the Cop did shoot the Elk, said the elk was injured (no one in the neighborhood saw it with any injuries) , but never called dispatch (required by city policy before discharge of a weapon in non-emergency situation), never filed an after action report (required in all situations where an officer discharges a gun), and never called Parks & Wildlife (not required but SOP for the department when dealing with wildlife).

Bottom line is the officer Poached the Elk in the City (Where hunting is banned) and tried to cover it up. If he honestly shot the Elk because it was injured, he would have called dispatch before hand, called Parks & Wildlife, and filed an after action report. He and the deputy should be charged with Poaching and fired.
Yep, that's the story I heard as well.

I like BBQ Elk ribs wonderful when fresh and buffalo is wonderful a close second to beaver. But I really prefer beaver. Nothing like eating hot and juicy beaver.

Once you eat it at least a steak and not the ground up stuff you will hate eating beef for a good long time. Man it is good and I am sitting here thinking about the meat right next to the bone in a tbone steak and just wishing I had some
