Boulder advocates raise money for elk memorial

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Boulder chapter of an animal support group has raised $3,000 to pay for a permanent memorial to an elk that was killed by a police officer.

Supporters from the organization In Defense of Animals say the memorial would be a symbol of what is important to Boulder residents.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (http://tinyurl.com/b372fjz ), two police officers accused of conspiring to illegally kill the trophy elk in Boulder on Jan. 1 resigned. The two were arrested on nine charges, including killing an elk out of season and tampering with evidence.

One of the officers said the elk looked like it needed to be put down because of injuries.
