    Ok, the officers in question definitely acted with poor judgement, and *may* have committed an actual crime…but a candlelight vigil for an animal makes me vaguely nauseated. They are game animals, and we hunt them for food. Seriously, are you going to hold a vigil for the next elk that dies of starvation or wolf predation?

    I agree with Matthew. It might not have been necessary to shoot the elk, but a candlelight vigil and comparing it to mass homicide is ridiculous.
    Will these same people be equally upset if some innocent cougar starts eating their dogs and threatening their children?

    Time index: 1:11-1:18 “…I don’t see a whole lot of difference between the shooting of this defenseless elk and defenseless school children in Connecticut…”

    God, please help us. Save us from liberal whackjobs.

    Wow…no difference between an elk and a child? God help us!

    I say that what ever fine I would have had to pay for killing an elk, more than likely without a permit and probably out of season, should be tripled and charged to these clowns, I mean cops. Why is it that cops are above the law when it comes to something like this? They should know better and that’s why they should pay triple.

    To have compassion for an Animal is good for people,but comparing the shooting of a Elk to the shooting of a child by a madman, sounds whacked to me,How do you think the parents of those children feel when they hear a statement like that?Grieving for the animal I believe is a good thing, showing love and care for an animal who will be truly missed shows there are caring people in this community,but this isn’t like the shooting of innocent children.

    Elk happens to be very good eating. I drool for an elk burger.

    As soon as you anthropormorphise an animal (that means give it a human name like “Herschel” the sea lion), then any real form of animal control is mean, inhuman, and defeated. Animal “rights” activists win the arguments just by virtue of recognizing the term “animal rights” being equivalent to human rights.

    The ignorance of the American public is embarrassing. I guess I have lived too long. I never could have imagined anyone, even a east-west coast fanatic, holding vigil for an elk. I live in the state of Wyoming. Animal life & death happens daily. The World will not cease to turn because some goofballs gave a wild animal a human name (like Bambi). They don’t appear to live in the real world.

    Incredible. The sickness of the people seems incurable. Mourn the dead Elk and the dead children, and the dead trees, and the spotted owl, and the river water, and poor Hamas, and the worn torn women of America, and the turtles and the entitlement hoarders, and the occupiers, and the this and the that.

    Sickness, disease. The ingredients of left-wing liberalism. Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.
