Boy Scout Troop Leaders in Utah Topple 170 Million Year Old Rock Formation

Glenn Taylor and Dave Hall were Boy Scout leaders when the scouts went on trip to Goblin Valley State Park in Utah in early October. The key word is ‘were’. They have been removed from their post because of an incident that happened on October 11 during their outing which they filmed and posted.

The two men face possible criminal charges for purposely toppling over an ancient rock formation at the park. The mushroom-shaped sandstone formation was 170 million years old and Hall is seen wedging himself between the formation to knock the large rock off the top, then the men started high-fiving, dancing and cheering.

When the Boy Scout’s Utah National Council found out about what happened they relieved the two men from their leadership position.  The men claim the formation was loose and they feared it might be dangerous to the boys in the area. The Utah Parks authorities are conducting a criminal investigation to determine if charges should be filed.
