Toppling hoodoos in Goblin Valley

If you're going to vandalize the hoodoos in Goblin Valley you may as well film it and post it on YouTube:

And these were Boy Scout leaders!

Here's the ABC News version:

Here's a fairly lengthy news article on the aftermath:

Couldn't believe this when I first saw it--still can't, but unfortunately it happened. Glad the Boy Scouts told them they weren't welcome anymore--hope law enforcement isn't far behind.

Plus the guy that actually pushed the goblin over was filing for disability before this event. I don't know if they will get jail time, but they certainly deserve hefty fines and lots of community service.
