Even if the Police did shoot an Elk so what . It may not have got called in because they did not see it as a big issue .
Even if they did act inappropriately it's hardly worth suspending someone over a dead animal . Jeez what happens if you accidentally shoot a person in the line of duty , the death penalty . Sheriff launches probe ! what a wanker .
This could have just been handled internally with a caution and some duty punishment .
I live in big game unit and if I had elk that was injured on my place and I shot it beside the fine I'd lose my hunting right and I could have my day in court if I think I was innocent I could hire
attorney like this to handle case

There going to get there day in court if their charged and start of all this was that picture. If they called it in wouldn't be seeing this post but they didn't so I would hope someone is questioning their judgement call. Those officer could arrest me for what they did and more likely I'd have to post bail etc to get out of jail these are things that don't get sweep under the rug. It's a bad deal.
