Boy Scouts Topple Utah Rock Formation

Which badge do you get for destroying a 170-million-year-old landmark? A group of Boy Scouts leaders are facing the possibility of criminal charges after deliberately toppling an ancient desert rock formation in Utah and then showing off video of the incident online. The men were leading a group of 14 to 16-year-olds on a trip through Goblin State Park when they say they spotted a loose rock formation and feared the danger it might pose to the kids. Dave Hall, the man who shot the video, told the Associated Press on Friday, “This is about saving lives. One rock at a time.” The case is still being investigated but, depending on how much officials determine the rock was worth, the men could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.
