PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION RE THE ELK MURDERED IN BOULDER, COLORADO! These morally and ethically bankrupt corrupt policemen walked up to the animal and murdered it! It did not run, it was not injured, just peacefully hanging out in the neighborhood!

What a friggin' coward. Firing on a practically tame elk that's become a neighborhood fixture and terrorizing the neighborhood. He had no right. I hope they fire, jail and fine him to the max, and shoot his *ss out of town.

Here is the link again http://www.causes.com/causes/3114-in-defense-of-animals?causes_ref=email&template=cause_mailer%2Fwelcome_user and another link https://secure2.convio.net/ida/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=2297. If anyone is having trouble, please try these. You can also google In Defense of Animals and see if you can access it from their site. Don't know why it would not let Shelley sign!

This shooting has been very emotional for the residents of the neighborhood and for Boulder! THIS WAS NOT A SPORTING ACT - IT WAS A COWARD WHO DID THIS! The animal had been coming every year for the last three years and people loved that elk! There is a law in place because this happened to an elk in Estes Park that was a fixture and it was poached like Big Boy! About 200 people turned out for a candlelight vigil for this beautiful animal murdered by cowards! The police just think they can kill whatever they want from domestic pets to wildlife and it needs to stop! They broke several laws and Wildlife Services may have a big criminal case against them! The police chief needs to do the right thing and get rid of these guys! Now the whole world knows the story!

They're always saying the same excuse when they kill an innocent animal; "it was agressive"... Even if it was true, animals are animals, people are expecting them to behave like humans. Let those poor animals live. Most of humans are worst than them anyway.
