SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Two Utah men have been stripped of their positions as Boy Scout leaders after they posted a video of themselves purposely toppling an ancient rock formation in a state park.
A northern Utah Boy Scouts council announced Monday that the men involved in the Oct. 11 event at Goblin Valley State Park have been removed from their posts. The news release doesn’t name the men, but Glenn Taylor and Dave Hall have taken responsibility for what happened.
They say the rock formation was loose and they feared it was dangerous. They were leading a group of teenage Boy Scouts on a trip when it happened.
The Boy Scouts of America condemned the men’s actions last week, and said action could be taken after a review of the incident.
