A group of Boy Scout Leaders could face criminal charges after posting a video to Facebook of them pushing over an ancient rock formation in Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park.

The story, covered yesterday by the Salt Lake Tribune, indicates that three men were visiting Goblin Valley when they decided to record their antics.

The man filming the video is heard saying: “Some little kid was about to walk down here and die. It’s all about saving lives here at Goblin Valley.”

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that three men have come forward in the case, which is currently being investigated by State Parks authorities.

Looks like they were simply destroying the natural beauty of the state park and filming their “feats of strength” while doing it. If they were really trying to prevent an accident, why didn’t they let the park officials determine the best coarse of action? I hope they fine the crap out of them!

Agreed. Sad that these fat, hillbillies are associated with the boy scouts who are taught over and over about preservation of nature.

As a scout leader I am amazed that anyone associated with scouting could or would do this. I hope that the scouts under their guidance learn from their hard lesson. And that they get new leadership.
