And the difference is what exactly? Destruction is destruction.
Who cares, if there had been a hard rain storm and it toppled over no one would.
I wonder how much ancient rocks were moved to make way for Americas city's, it's just a microcosm of the macrocosm here however much I don't condone it.
If the park service had said themselves that this was a hazard to visitors and moved the rock, once again, I doubt anyone would care.
I know for a fact that they routinely move rocks.edit on 19-10-2013 by SevenBeans777 because: (no reason given)
