Boy Scout Leaders Destroy 200 Million-Year-Old Rock Formation in Utah State Park: VIDEO


A group of Boy Scout leaders is facing potential felony charges for destroying a 200-million-year-old rock formation in Goblin Valley State Park, the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

In the video, posted on Facebook, one man can be seen leveraging himself against a nearby rock and pushing a formation over.
