BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Prosecutors are offering a former Boulder police officer accused in the illegal shooting of an elk on New Year’s Day a deal.

If Brent Curnow pleads guilty to felony tampering and four misdemeanors the other three felonies will be dropped. As of Friday Curnow hadn’t accepted the offer.

Fellow officer Sam Carter is accused of shooting the elk while on duty and Curnow is accused of picking up the carcass.

The Boulder County district attorney said the deal was offered to Curnow because he was less culpable than Carter.
