Police release internal affairs report on dead elk

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - An internal investigation into two former Boulder officers accused in the Jan. 1 shooting of a trophy elk says no other police department employees should face discipline.

A report released Wednesday says no other department employees knew about plans to kill the animal.

Sam Carter and Brent Curnow resigned in January after they were arrested on allegations of misconduct and taking an elk out of season. Investigators say Carter shot the elk while on duty and that Curnow was off duty but helped haul the carcass away. Carter has said the elk looked like it was injured, though investigators have raised questions about that.

Police Chief Mark Beckner has sustained allegations that Carter and Curnow violated department rules and entered the findings into their personnel files.
