BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- A court document alleges that a Boulder police officer charged with poaching an elk and tampering with evidence told other officers a week beforehand that he planned to kill the animal.

The Boulder Daily Camera reported Sunday (http://tinyurl.com/b9spk2k) that an arrest warrant affidavit accused officer Sam Carter of mentioning a plan to kill the elk during a routine shift briefing on Dec. 26.

The elk was shot on Jan. 1.

Carter and officer Brent Curnow face charges including forgery, tampering with physical evidence, illegally killing a trophy elk and killing an elk out of season.

Both are on unpaid leave. No phone listing could be found for either.

Carter allegedly told investigators the elk looked like it needed to be killed because of an injury. A resident has disputed that.
