Said this in the last thread;

All these people saying how peaceful it is and how they could walk right up to it and almost pet it so that means nothing should have been done...? Morons. This is a freaking huge wild animal. You shouldn't be getting that close to it, period.

Paochers are assholes. The fact that they are cops makes them double-assholes.

Poor elk. All he wanted was some Skittles.

I loved that elk. I'm sorry he's gone.

He was delicious. I wish I had more.

Mister_poopy_pants: 7 years ago, they held a funeral for a bunch of trees that were cut down just outside Boulder, so this is not even close to the eco-freakiest thing that has happened there.

From the story:
"The grove of large cottonwood trees lining the road she had become accustomed to seeing - even searching their branches for bald eagles and raptors - had been cut down to stumps the size of pianos.

"I ended up crying the whole rest of the day," said Harley, 43.

She returned that night and apologized to the trees, but the grief didn't go away. And so Harley decided to throw the trees a funeral."

Yeah, crying isn't that too far out of line; it's a bit out there but within reason to cry over environmental destruction. Going back to apologize to the trees and then *telling people* that you did so is where you cross over to crazytown.

ITGreen: Animals behave differently here in Boulder... you can practically pet the squirrels.

OH, Boulder is just special and magical and all animals are domesticated on entering their borders! So there exists no danger.

These are the same types of morons who try to pose pictures with bears and bull moose.

If the elk had a gun, this would never have happened.
