BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Several hundred people turned out for a vigil in Boulder for an elk killed by a police officer.

Those honoring the animal on Sunday lit candles, sang and told stories.

The elk that had wandered the neighborhood was fatally shot by an on-duty Boulder police officer, who has been placed on leave. An off-duty officer suspected of helping by loading the carcass into a pickup is also on leave.

The Boulder Daily Camera (http://tinyurl.com/a8hucx6 ) reported that organizers wanted to give people an opportunity to grieve, celebrate and find closure.

That's stupid. I understand not wanting it killed but a vigil, seriously? People have way too much free time.
