The Boy Scouts of America blasted two Utah leaders who gleefully toppled a boulder from a Jurassic-era rock formation in a state park and said they could face punishment by the organization, in addition to possible criminal charges.
“We are shocked and disappointed by this reprehensible behavior," Deron Smith, a spokesman for the venerable scouting group, said in a statement on Friday as police and prosecutors investigated the incident.
Smith said the 3.7 million children and adults who participate in scouting are supposed to adhere to the principle of "Leave No Trace" when exploring the great outdoors.
"The isolated actions of these individuals are absolutely counter to our beliefs and what we teach," Smith said. "We are reviewing this matter and will take appropriate action.”
