An elk on duty in a residential area.

District Attorney Stan Garnett today announced that Boulder police officers Sam Carter and Brent Curnow were arrested this morning in connection with the Jan. 1 shooting of a towering bull elk on Mapleton Hall, saying investigators determined the two men conspired to kill the elk as a trophy and for its meat.

The officers are facing felony counts of tampering with physical evidence, attempt to influence a public servant and forgery, as well as misdemeanor charges of unlawful taking of a trophy elk, conspiracy, a Samson law surcharge, killing an elk out of season, use of an electronic communication device to take an elk, and official misconduct.

I never knew or heard about the Samson Law.

For those as retarded as me:

The additional fine is the result of the so-called Samson Law passed by the Colorado legislature. The Samson Law came about as the result of a poacher shooting a 1,000-pound elk near Estes Park. The new measure places mandatory fines on top of existing penalties. The added amounts range from $4,000 for an antelope up to $25,000 for a bighorn sheep. The surcharges are levied only when a trophy-sized animal is taken.

"The Samson bill is a valuable instrument on the wildlife books. People have said they don't want to see their wildlife resources plundered and have taken a hard line to deter poaching," Trujillo said.

The fines for poaching trophy-size animals, as defined by the following measurements, are:
• Pronghorn antelope with a horn length of 14 inches or more $4,000
• Bull elk with six or more points on an antler beam $10,000
• Whitetail deer buck with an inside antler spread of 18 inches or more $10,000
• Mule deer buck with an inside antler spread of 22 inches or more $10,000
• Any bull moose $10,000
• Any mountain goat $10,000
• Bighorn sheep with a horn length of one-half curl or more $25,000

Hate on Boulder all you like, but it really is a nice place to live. Sure, there are hippy, liberal freaks, but it has a lot to do, is clean, little crime, tons of outdoors stuff to do, etc.

Does that charge mean that you are not allowed to use radios in a hunting party, or is it specific to the poaching charge?

electronic game calls. It's ok to trick them by rubbing two sticks together, but you'll go to jail forever for using an electronic mating call.

It's illegal to use two way communication devices to coordinate the taking of game in a lot of states.

After reading some of the side stories at the sights, I've concluded the people there are odd.

"Boulder residents mourn Mapleton elk at candlelight vigil"

http://www.dailycamera.com/news/boulder/ci_22322028/residents-mourn-boulder-elk-at-candlelight-vigil?source=pkg

I'm all for the poaches being charged in this case, but a candlelight vigil for an elk??
I know a lot of us have had a lot of anger, a lot of questions, a lot of uncertainty,” he said. “Tonight's a celebration, a celebration of the elk. We loved him. But I think he loved us, too, because he returned to this neighborhood.

WTF!

The elk was acting like an asshole, not obeying lawful commands, and goaded the officers into the act.

Wait, Elks don't have dogs, this story makes no sense. Why were they even there?

Boulder may be left leaning but oink is right, I lived right outside of Boulder for a few years, not a bad place overall. Hard to complain about a city that close to some very beautiful country with food that good.

I think it was legal when I hunted in NJ and I don't remember if Pennsylvania had a rule on it or not. I think it was legal in New York, too. This is going back a few years, though.
